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

How To Make It

1

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

2

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.

3

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

4

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.

5

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

6

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

7

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

8

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