Big flash bulb

$ 22.06

A normally threaded (European bulb-thread) bulb filled with metal wool



When the bulb is connected to battery voltage, the wool lights up with enormous power! One bulb is equivalent to about 50 x 60 watt bulbs lit for two seconds. Use 4,5 to 24 volt to ignite to fire the bulb. The bulb will be hot for a short time. Simulates the light from an explosion – but with no sound or smoke.

Several hundred of these bulbs were used to “blow up a floor” in a real skyscraper in the movie “Die Hard” where all bulbs were rigged to fire when only one firing button was pressed. The enormous light gave the impression on an explosion using the real building, without actually destroying anything.

They were also used in the final sequence of “Raiders of the lost Ark” where the bad guys are “pierced by light beams”. In this case, the bulbs were hidden behind the shirts and jackets and when set off, the light lit up the clothes from behind. The actors were protected with insulation and CGI-elements were added.

Great to give the impression of a crash, an explosion, distant cataclysms, the effects of lightning, light from supernatural forces etc. Will only work once. Sensitive to static electricity. Wear safety goggles when handling them. Do not place in pockets.
