Here we have a six foot tall robot pirate who is more than willing to fight off anyone who tries to make off with his candy this Halloween! The robot's arms are being controlled with relays connected to an Arduino microcontroller. The head has a Logitech camera connected through a laptop to a Netgear wireless router so that a user can remotly login with a computer and see what the robot is seeing. Several infrared LEDs mounted on a circular circuit board give the robot poor but still helpful night vision.
