I’m an unabashed fan of Dr. Who, both the old and the new series. So, when my maker itch was needing a little scratching one day, I decided to see what I could do about creating some custom Sonic Screwdrivers for myself and friends. The most complicated part of this project was finding a way to get the circuitry to emit both light and sound. Doesn’t sound too hard, but to get components (especially speakers) that small is a surprisingly difficult task.
After a few weeks I had a lot of research done, but no more time to really work on it. So, I took a shortcut and dissasembled an already working sonic screwdriver and built a really sturdy case. Meet my custom sonic screwdriver Mk I. All brass, heavy as can be, and fully works to open things (like beer bottles).
Yup, it’s alll pipes.
The interior came from a different sonic screwdriver, but I’ve got plans for some more comlex versions.
