DIY Mad Max Power Wheels War Rig: Fuwy Woad

by Lambert Varias

Cory and Jeremy Newton-Smith are famous for making geeky Halloween rides for their son Cooper. After the DeLorean time machine and the Ecto-1, Cooper’s next ride is one we should all witness: the War Rig from Mad Max: Fury Road. And you can’t have a War Rig without Imperator Furiosa, so Cooper’s baby sister Ziggy joined the family tradition.

The tiny truck has four motors from two used Power Wheels jeeps, LEDs, amps and speakers for sound effects. Cory and Jeremy used two Arduino Nanos to handle the toy’s electronics: one for the motors and another for the audio. To keep the kids safe, the truck has a keyed ignition and can be remote controlled with an iPhone app over Bluetooth. It’s also programmed to automatically stop if it loses connection with mommy and daddy’s phone.

Head to Cory’s website for more photos and shots of their latest Halloween cosplay. While they have your attention, the Newton-Smiths would love it if you could donate to Cycle Kids, a Massachusetts-based kids organization that promotes a healthy lifestyle.
