Halloween may be over but we are still seeing plenty of amazing costumes that we want to blog about! Check out the video above from YouTube user Christopher LaFrieda who used NeoPixels and an Arduino to make this adorable astronaut costume.
Charles got rave reviews on his astronaut costume. Started with a store bought astronaut costume and helmet. Added lights (Neopixels) to the inside of the helmet and two on the outside with some salvaged flash light parts. The chest pack houses an arduino and adafruit sound board/speakers to play com audio downloaded from nasa. In addition, there is an arduino powered wrist computer with a touch screen to control the lights and coms.
