Introduction: Exoskeleton S.P.D. (Sistema Personal De Demolicion or Demolition Personal System)

Picture of Exoskeleton S.P.D. (Sistema Personal De Demolicion or Demolition Personal System)

Hi guys:

I always wanted my own Power Loader, APU, exosqueleton or Red Power Ranger's Battlizer. Well, I built my own exoskeleton using... TRASH!!! Plastic junk who comes from PVC pipes, a broken chair, printer and PC pieces, a baby's table, an old electric typewriter, and deodorant caps, all of them found throwed in the streets of my city. Add an electric R/C car engine and an electric screwdriver's motor, and joysticks, and assemble with a Dremel motortool and electric screwdrivers, and you will be ready to say "SPD, EMERGENCY!!, destroy some robots or kick some alien butt. And well, it will be my Halloween costume!!!

The gaitling gun spins, and the claw opens and closes. Uses 4 AA rechargeable batteries in each arm.

Hello, I would like this to be used for people who use wheelchairs, that pudding stand and walk.

Yes, I would like, too. Maybe one day, I can make this to work more than a Halloween prop.

M.C. Langer (author)juanoporras2010-06-13

Gracias hermano!!!!!!!!!!!

yohaneskurnia (author)2010-05-18

cool , I like it a lot . I am from Indonesia , could you possibly teach me how to make it in my country ? email:

Hi Yohaneskurnia!

Thanks! Well, I didn't make an instructable for this. But you can get the idea watching my "Become a Mad Cyborg" instructable. Is the same principle, more ergonomic and less heavy.

qwertyty (author)2010-04-15

Very cool idea , but what do you use this for?

M.C. Langer (author)qwertyty2010-04-15

Thank you!!

I used this in Expociencia Expotecnología 2009 (The greatest science fair in Colombia) for attracting people to my recycled products stand, and later for Halloween!

fop (author)2010-04-01

you should mount a coil gun on it there very easy to make

M.C. Langer (author)fop2010-04-01

Good idea!

skaterqwertyuiop (author)2010-03-13

 Great Job. I've some of your instructables and I have one question...
What do your neighbors think about you?
Great Idea.

Thank you Skater!!!!!! Well, some of them call me "Robocop" (WTF????), and their kids come to my house only to see the new toys of "Robocop". One day, I will show my toys in!

Thank you!!
