This is a robot costume featuring, flashing/pulsing lights and a glowing heart.

How To Make It


Find a cardboard box that is slightly bigger than your torso.


Cut the bottom out of the box and cut a hole in the top of the box that is wide enough to fit your head through.


On the sides of the box, cut holes out for your arms. Make sure to leave enough room to move your arms comfortably.


Begin planning your Bit layout by placing Bits on the front of the box. I recommend placing the power Bit on the bottom right corner of the box. It will be easy to reach in order to turn the costume on and off.


Once you have your Bits laid out where you want them, use double stick tape to keep them in place.


Once your Bits are attached and you have tested your circuit, you can start applying the tin foil to the box.


Using clear tape, tape the shiny side of the foil facing out on the box. Use small strips to fit in between the Bits.


Once the whole box is covered in foil, put it on and dance like a robot.
