Arduino microcontrollers are a small and powerful tool you can use to take your costumes to the next level. YouTube user Honus67 has configured a board to create an animatronic Predator cannon that has laser sight, cannon sounds, and head tracking motion control.

Though the work involved isn’t necessarily simple, Honus has written a detailed step by step to get you started.
Check out the full tutorial.
