Halloween robot costume incorporating AVRs

Creatrope writes – “Here’s a kid’s halloween robot costume with a twist – candy-powered and ATmega16 blinky lights! Most of the material is recycled. The entire costume was assembled from concept to treat-or-treating in about an hour and half (beside the trip to buy the materials above). The only parts are had to buy are the heating duct arms and the silver spray paint. The glued on parts were put on with a hot-glue gun, which seemed to hold the odd-shaped doodads well.”Link.
