AHOY! Here's some robot stuff. I made  costumes with ALVY, for the Lewes Fireworks parade. Was well cool. I had my ANTICLOCK box (schematic below) switching 4 channels of LED strips in packing foam. I also clocked my Korg Monotribe from the AC, which ran into a kaos pad mini, and into my minirig. It was fun and I hope to make a video of it soon. The chest plate is a paint tray secured with a bunjy.
I played a gig with the outfit at the Holditdown xmas party. This time I used Nanoloop 1.3 running on a gameboy classic with a boss DD20 for FX. I tried the most outrageous sync chain for the GB, but this was patchy, so the outfit and music were independently synced.
The gig was funny for many reasons. My favourite was the abuse we were getting from the meatheads when we were dj'ing turning into love and raving when the beats and flashing lights started.
A surprising bonus was hallucinating a lot when the mask slipped over my eyes (often).

I really like the LED strip/foam combo, cheers to Uwe + Jordis, and Alvy for the inspiration.
