An attempt at creating an Iron man suit. Postponed until further notice.
Hello, its been a long while hasn't it! I'll make an update sharing what I've been up yo but for now here are a few UIs to look at for a HUD (made by me in Unity Engine, not in ARcl yet). There's a lot that has happened and the project will be moving again at full speed soon!
These were made for something im making called the XRUIOS but it will also do for this project!
I am not dead people! In the next blog, i'll be showing off some new designs and stuff!
Be sure to follow and give a skull to https://hackaday.io/project/96605
With energy, there are multiple things to look at when choosing materials. The main thing to look at for today is PSI and heat resistance. The material I choose will need a high level of both. This is due to the way the reactor works. After searching for what regular materials use, I went online and found out this
“Materials currently in use or under consideration include:
Multi-layer tiles of several of these materials are also being considered and used, for example:
Now although all these materials are good, I will either need to compress all of this or make the chest area from that. I may do both.
For dissipation, a vacuum (a vacuumless space may take in the heat. How will this be done? It’s kinda hard to explain, but it should work good for now. The heat will basically be pushed into said space by a cooling system like a computer (just more powerful) directing heat to the vacuum.
The main backup plan is to have multiple batteries around the suit and connect to where the arc reactor is. I can then pull the arc reactor out of the chest area and put into a hold at the back until further notice.
Some materials I may use is single Chrystal titanium and ceramic for protection AND heat resistance, tungsten solely for heat resistance and steel for a base. My insides will be protected by multiple layers of metals and meta-metals. The padding will be temper foam which is used by astronauts and Carbon Fiber Nomex which is basically protective padding if used right.
If a plastic is to be used, it will most likely be surrounded by metal and screwed into an electronic. This will thus unallow the pastic from damaging something and being functional.
The flight system will work by ion thrusters. Although they are very simplistic and may allow flight, the need a lot of power, so I will NEED that arc reactor. To have the flight so well, i'll need to bass boost the Ion thruster with electricity or so be it i'll use antimatter engines :-)
The exosuit will likely look something like a pack of small squares as that'll be nanobots, but that's a talk for a different day. There will also be the conventional pneumatic cylinder (which is basically something that uses air and a cylinder to increase in force.) but there will be a bit based on Pierre Bouchard
This came out pretty good, but I will need to make some said adjustments in order to have one of these functioning at minimal space. I'll have some stuff 3d printed by a friend to do so. The exosuit will be powered VIA arc reactor and air valve bank (or air valve bank alternative where air is stored across multiple parts of the suit. Before I go, I want

So the gauntlet is getting closer to being finished by the second and after quite a while, there's progress coming fast. I've been working on the gauntlet and there are currently three versions made. There's the gauntlet from a year ago, a now recycled gauntlet and this bad boy:
In eh picture quality, there is currently both servos for the rocket launcher opening/closing system, two arduino pro minis (one for rocket launcher, one for gauntlet opening/closing system), a servo tester to test the rocket launcher hold and an opening to mark the sides without hinges. Mini pneumatic cylinders will be added to (hold) the gauntlet and as a cheap way to fix the gauntlet if I grow. There are 6 blue LEDS, 4 of which turn on with the gauntlet opened and two with the rocket launcher opening. Some things to be included once the basic neccesities are there is
- Tungsten to protect metal from melting ( tungsten can withstand about 6,192°F or 3,422°C ).
- Aerogel (maybe but it's kind of expensive) for heat dispertion
-Penny-Sized nanobots for part replacement
and all other typed of stuff
The gauntlet is currently being given rfid tags, wire organization and other fixes.
Then there's Jarvis. @Chati Aro Has been a huge help with Jarvis. Here's some functions so far:
FM = Feature Matching (Matches the features of a given image with a base image and displays the result)
LD = Letter Detection
MD = Motion Detection (Detects any sort of motion infront of the camera
PD = Pedestrian Detection (Can detect any person walking on streets.. Used an image from GTA as an output example)
SD = Shape Detection
Without @Chati Aro, this would not be possible.
While videos are in production, i'm adding in some plans for circuits. Some people may remember this
Well i'm taking the basic ideas of it and am trying to rig it up. Until I start putting in the advanced stuff, that's all for now.

Beginning of month 1
HUD creation Part 1
SO, it is July and what I decided to do was start on a Heads-Up Display. I decided to look at what my fellow hackers at hackaday were doing. I found some projects, but they were either too big, too bulky, or didn’t work how I wanted it to. After a while of looking at instructables, YouTube and other sites, I decided to look at modern tech and how others were doing it. I looked at the hacksmith’s Heads up display for his exo suit, but it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. I was looking for something DIY, when I saw Full sail’s HUD. I taught it was good, but the HoloLens was super expensive. That’s when I found an Arduino based augmented reality glasses that was easily makeable, small, not bulky, and light.

This was perfect. After a while of struggling I was looking at the Jarvis setup of someone known on Instagram as the_crazy_programmer_chatti, and I was wondering if I could use the setup in the HUD. Soon after, he answered my comment by saying he would be happy to do it. After getting a set of base designs and material, I wouldn’t see the HUD progress until the next month.
Month 2 (August)
HUD creation Part 2
Now I started thinking about the HUD seriously. When I came into contact with Chattai, he said that there could actually be a real time 3d model with animations. As this interested me, I said okay. We decided that the HUD should be finished before that’s added, because that may take a while. As i’m the hardware guy, I sent him a list of all sensors that would be controlled. By doing that, he would know what function would go into a certain aspect.
Here’s the list:
Altimeter (Mark VII version) - MPL3115A2 - I2C Barometric Pressure/Altitude/Temperature Sensor
There’s also one by a danny diefferender or something like that
RT power- Don’t worry about this
Core temp- Temperature sensor (arduino)
Missiles sensors (there are 26 of them)- Temperature sensor. One less missile when the temp sensors go extremely high (leave a place for me to put a temperature). Also If you can connect it to a pushbutton so number of missiles can be added.
Weapons sensor- (be creative as this is the mix of all 26 missiles, the 2 repulsors (everlasting), both sentries (lasts 5 shots), and the infamous arc reactor (one shot)
Navigation- Same as altimeter
Have 26 node indicators go up and down from 100 to 0. Those are for the missiles.
Flight mode panel:
Airframe thrusters: The rotational position of a 180 degree servo
Vertical velocity sensor: Just put the rate of change in air pressure per 5 seconds.
Warning panel: Basically if the pressure goes up to 80
Accelerometer: MPL3115A2 - I2C Barometric Pressure/Altitude/Temperature Sensor
Airbrake: The rate of change in altitude but when going down
MPL3115A2 - I2C Barometric Pressure/Altitude/Temperature Sensor
I don’t know how some aspects will be done like messaging, music, apps, ect. but he says that he has an idea. So as usual, i’ll trust him. I still have some parts to do in the HUD such as missile sensors, but the HUD is looking good so far. It’s based off of Jayse Hansen’s HUD, as he’s the one who did the HUD for iron man in several movies. Luckily for me, Jayse Hansen has given us the liberty of showing the breakdown of the HUD.

Rocket Launcher Part 1 (Well it kinda covers 2 months)
At first, I had three designs for the rocket launcher.
Model A (an original based on Jairus Of All)
Model B (from Patrick Preibe)
Model C (from poot padee)
Model A was built for the mark 7 and had almost no relation the mark 42 look. Model B didn’t have the magic I was looking for. I saw model 3, and I taught it was perfect. Sleek, designer,...Read more »
