Strobulon! The LED helmet

Just in time for Halloween! ...2017.

This idea started for a work Halloween costume party a few years ago – I was working in retail distribution centres and we decided it would be fun to dress up as superheroes based on the common devices we worked with. There was Horn Man, Prox (as in proximity sensor) Girl, Captain Carton, and more. I claimed the lowly strobe lamp, and decided to go the evil nemesis route by creating the character Strobulon.

A simple concept: a big helmet that acted as a strobe light, and a voice changer to sound extra evil. Naturally, I took it a little too far.
