Todd Blatt — former MakerBot employee, Baltimore Node hackerspace member and the brains behind Custom3dStuff.com — has locked Tickle-Me-Elmo in Carbonite, exactly where that talking “Sesame Street” character belongs.
Video of the newest prisoner to giant alien booger-blob Jabba the Hutt is below.
As for how Blatt managed to make it look like Elmo was encased in Carbonite? He explained on his blog:
I used the ShopBot CNC router at the MIT FablLab at CCBC in Catonsville, MD to cut the box, an arduino to copy code to an attiny85 to run the randomization script for the LED lights, and my MakerBot to 3d print the side panels I’d previously designed for a different project. The side panels are posted here on Thingiverse and I just drilled out holes for the lights.
