As I posted earlier, I’m creating a new GI Joe Adventure Team gear set. This one is to counter cyber-terrorists. It’s called Cyber Counter-Attack, and features several helpful bits of equipment to thwart an active local cyber attack.
First, the concept:
The first model I tackled was the Cyber EMP Grenade. It’s a bulky hand-thrown grenade that contains a very powerful magnetic pulse circuit. Simply push the plunger and throw. A timer, set by using the hacking console, counts down and then BOOM! A massive localized Electro-Magnetic Pulse knocks out any electronic equipment a hacker may be using.
To make it a bit more useful, there is also a magnetic base the grenade can fit in to make it a plantable mine. You simply stick it to a wall and let it count down. Same result without having to toss it.
To make this, I modeled five separate parts:
– Body Bottom
– Base Cup
– Base Bottom
I also use three rare-earth magnets in each grenade/mine combo. One very small one for the base of the plunger, a cylindrical one for the bottom part, and one for the mine base.
Here’s a little movie I shot showing how it works:
