The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

 Post subject: shoulder lamp for smart gun

The shoulder lamp is 3d printed minus the fins which are a resin cast from spat (they look and assemble better). The mounting kit is from spat. The lamp is a 100w cob led array that I have steeped from 7.2vdc to 40vdc on a variable booster. The speaker is a 35w Memphis audio speaker (they have a no questions asked warranty on their pro line stuff and I like how they sound.) The amp is a 12vdc 8w amp made by adafruit. The dc-dc booster is a Chinese unit as I have been unable to source a local stateside unit that has the input/output range and size factor.

I have it set to mount to a 1/8" steel plate that I will have attached to the Steadicam vest with some 2" webbing I got from Knoxville foam and fabric and some buckles from buckleguy.com.

I just got the electronics tested and working this week. The webbing will get installed this coming week and a coat of flat black paint applied. The webbing will get attached with Chicago screws from buckleguy.

Have you run the speaker while test mounted? As someone that is slowing losing their hearing, I'd be a little worried about having it close [ish] to my ear ...

As it was my 3d file, I think it stems from his taking me serious about the hole being for a speaker (being that the original prop WAS an alarm box.) I was recommending a #14 plastic canvas, cut at 45 degrees to X/Y, be used as the grill/cover, allowing the circle hole to be seen (like the prop.)

But, I could be wrong. What do I know... all I do is drive the short bus. :shock: :P

Mounting clip is one from spatcave. I try to use off the shelf as much as I can so there is not a bigger push to sell things.

This will be shown off at fanboy expo in Knoxville on Halloween weekend.

Robert Patrick, Edward Furlong, and Summer Glau will be there.

I have to ditch the headset hud setup for now until I sort out mounting to counter the weight issue as the electronics has added to the weight.
