Halo First Aid Kit Won’t Instantly Restore Your Health

by Lambert Varias

Health kits are a staple of many first-person shooters and action games. While he doesn’t possess the technology to emulate their instant healing ability, Shawn Thorsson managed to make a spot-on replica of the health kit from Halo.

Using a screenshot from Halo: Combat Evolved, Thorsson made a 3D model in TurboCAD. He then used the model to make molds made out of MDF. The replica itself is made of styrene plastic. He then added nylon webbing for the hinges, a latch made of foam PVC and neodymium magnets and finally a vinyl sticker for the icon and voila. A Halo lunchbox! I mean a first aid kit!

Clearly Thorsson is the Master Chief of craftsmen, but if you think you’re up to the task, ride a Warthog to his blog for the full build instructions. The rest of us grunts will have to be content with the pictures on Thorsson’s Flickr page.

    Cool, but if you are going to decommission it as a first aid kit, change the label. Delay on finding a real first aid kit when needed can be lethal. You can’t hit the re-spawn button when you are dead in the real world. :-)
