This is a costume piece that was created for the Lincoln Steampunk Asylum festival. It’s inspired by the ‘exo-suit’ worn by Matt Damon in Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium.
I figured that building an entire suit was a little ambitious so I focussed on doing one arm instead. It’s primarily comprised of wood overlaid with plastic but I use a variety of metal bearings to give me sooth motion. The piece came out pretty well although it was abit on the heavy side!
