How To add Fiber Optics to a Hard Hat !
I wanted something to attract a attention when I went to Trades Shows. So I decided on a hard hat. Next I wanted to add a Barcode sticker to it. Then I thought: “Wouldn’t be a great attention getter if I could add a Barcode Laser Scanner effect to the barcode?” So thanks to my great friend at The Fiber Optic store I have my hard hat ready to wear in no time.
I used a small pin drill vise to make 19 holes in the font of the hard hat after the barcode sticker was on it.
Next I used heat shrink tubing to hold the fiber together.
Also I used heat shrink tubing to hold the fibers to the Blinking LED.
Then I used duck tape to hold it up in the hat. Glue or nothing else would hold because the poly propylene the hat is made of is so slippery and nothing stick to it.Two tiny hearing aid type batteries power the LED light. The 1000M illuminator would also work..
Finished effect shows a laser appearing beam scanning the barcode.
Thanks Doug for this awesome Idea!!
Very Creative! Who would have thought?
