Ecto-1 Wheelchair Costume

Ryan Scott Miller goes all out to build elaborate wheelchair costumes for his son. He uses the mobility of the wheelchair in the costume design and ensures his son is beyond prepared for Halloween. This year Jeremy gets to be a Ghostbuster driving around the Ecto-1, which of course has light and sound effects. The complex builds often include extending material out and beyond the wheelchair. For the Ecto-1, he constructed a frame from lightweight PVC piping. You can see a couple of in-progress photos below.

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.
