One of the best things about being a geek with children has got to be handing down your passions and fandoms. YouTuber Carsten Riewe did so by making his 13-month-old daughter a P5000 Powerloader harness inspired by Aliens. She had to be the most kick-butt baby on the block. Riewe explains:
This Baby costume was inspired by the Caterpillar P5000 Powerloader from the movie “Aliens” by James Cameron. 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 finish the costume and I built it for the “Karneval”-Parade in my hometown in Germany February 2014 . My 13 months old daughter enjoyed to be carried and moved in her harnness savely.
I’ve got to say, I’m a little jealous of this kid.
