Cyborg Costume Made From Recycled Computer Parts

cyborg costume

You can become more cyborg than human with a lot of time and lots of scavenged computer and computer accessories parts. That’s so much easier than time-traveling to the future! Instructables user M.C. Langer came up with this ensemble and said he raided junkyards, computer technical service sites, and trash cans to find everything from screens to scanners to keyboards. The more raw material the better. He incorporated all the recycled parts with LEDs and more to make a very cool costume. To see an example of his resourcefulness, check out this list of materials for the battle vest:

– A scanner
– Two old PC speakers
– LCD DELL screen back section
– PC screen base
– MAC screen base
– Printer piece
– Thermo top
– Battery box (for 4 AA batteries)
– Switch
– Wires
– Three green LEDs
– Metallic case of an old alarm clock (with de glass)
– Deodorant cap
– Plastic bottle cap with nozzle
– Metallic angles

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
