A: There are laws to protect your invention. You should discuss with an "Intellectual property" attorney. Patent/copyright laws. Is it legal? Well, making an explosive device must be done in compliance with a number of different state and local laws regarding safety and perhaps even the qualifications of the people putting together the explosive device. As a minor you probably don't have any college degrees that qualify you to deal with high explosives. You may be in violation of those laws. You should research it on the internet for your locale.
