Not strictly a bot, but this IronMan “robot costume” is pretty high-tech, as Halloween costumes go.
And at $3,200 and with specs like these, it’s clearly one for afficiandos:
This robot costume is standard with the painted body parts, gloves, underbody suit and a voice box that amplifies the performers voice 6 times the normal human voice. This robot costumes are built like aircraft from 100% durable lightweight composites including fiberglass and vacuum-formed plastics. The secret is that using composites Robot Costumes USA produces robot costumes that only weigh 35lbs which is no more than a hiking backpack. Our robots also have a three stage Dupont automotive paint job with two layers of clear-coat. Our robot costumes can take all kinds of abuse and is able to get wet if it rains. Just wash and wax it like a car.
