DIY Electronic Samus Arm Cannon

Click To Enlarge

11 year old Joseph DeRose will be cross dressing this Halloween as Samus Aran—and the cornerstone of the costume will be the elaborate arm cannon he build with his father. Check out the build and demo video after the break.

The controller features LED lights and sounds controlled by an Arduino. You even have to “login” before using it. Notice how DeRose acts out the recoil effect after each shot—way to sell it kiddo.

The father and son duo hope to have a completed costume ready by Halloween, hopefully they will share it with the world on their project site.
