Bill Crothers Secondary School
This Ironman Helmet is fully functioning and wearable. All the parts, including the mechanism to open and close the mask, were 3D printed in-house. The helmet is powered by a 5V rechargeable battery and is controlled via 2 switches. An on-off switch to control the eye lights and a DPDT switch to control the two servos that are in charge of opening and closing the mask. The helmet is fully analog and is wired using 2 modified MG90 servos, 2 limiter switches placed inside the helmet, and the DPDT (double pole double throw) switch connecting them all.
What Makes Your Project Remarkable?
The thing that makes this project so special to me is the learning curves involved for this project to have reached completion. Prior to this project, I knew next to nothing about CAD, circuits, switches, mechanical design, 3D printing and soldering. Since this was a personal project I taught myself through the internet and through trial and error, how to make all of these things work in conjunction.
