Animatronic Iron Man Suit

By Jerome Kelty

“The suit is basically broken down into three systems: left side, right side and boots. The left hand has two RFID tags that trigger programmed sequences for the helmet, hip pods and back flaps. The right hand RFID tags trigger programmed sequences for the forearm missile and shoulder rockets. The boots have an infrared sensor that triggers the boot lights and sound effect as soon as the boot is lifted from the ground.”

Get the full details on the parts used and schematics from the project feature on Hackaday.

Words probably won’t do this project justice, so here’s a video with the suit in action.
