ASIMO Costume makes you look like a real-life robot

We’ve all seen ASIMO, Honda’s advanced robot. When it was first debuted, it was the sort of thing that struck you with wonder. It made you think that maybe robots like C-3PO might actually be possible someday. Well how would you like to really make people believe something like that? No, I’m not talking about owning your own incredible robot. Instead, I’m talking about tricking people into thinking you’re one.

Over at the Japan Trend Shop you can purchase your very own ASIMO Costume. Made from polyurethane, it completely covers your entire body, leading people to believe that it’s not a costume at all. All you need to do is practice some rigid movements, and everyone will start to think that you’re a cybernetic being. The gag isn’t cheap, as it will set you back a little over $500. Thankfully there’s plenty of time to save up for April Fool’s or Halloween.

  • If I had one of these costumes I'd have to go to some bar somewhere and fall down the stairs. That would get maaaad laughs. lol
