Baby Power Loader Costume

(YouTube link)

Carsten Riewe built an awesome costume for the Karneval Parade based on the Caterpillar P5000 exoskeleton power loader in the movie Aliens. His 13-month-old daughter was the "driver."

The arms and legs are full moveable and the top-light and LED were powered by an 12 Volt battery pack stored in the backpack. The on/off switch is in the left arm. Also in the backpack a Bluetooth boombox ist installed to play mechanical robot sound fx or music if preferred. It took 100 working hours to finnish the costume and I built it for the "Karneval"-Parade in my hometown in Germany February 2014 .

And this thing can dance, too! A good time was had by all. -via Uproxx
