I made a lifesize set of Voltron Armor out of EVA foam, shaped with heat gun, carving knife, and rotary tool, then covered with CreatureCast neoprene rubber, latex paint, and a latex clear coat. I embedded electroluminescent (EL) wires to light up parts of the armor, and hid a circuit board I made and batteries inside the jetpack. I used a Mounting Board, Power bit, Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) bit, and a Wire bit, with the wire ends clipped and soldered into the circuit board to control the EL wire inverter. The armor lights can now be turned on and off anywhere, anytime using the littleBits iPhone app slider control.
