Lightweight, colourful armour for your robot...

Ikea's range of polypropylene place mats, e.g.

NB: These are discontinued often, but replaced by similar ones just with a different pattern.

It's pretty thin polypropylene (< 0.5mm) with a slightly rough surface and colourful pattern. Cuts and folds easily with scissors and other simple tools.

UPDATE: I think it will laser cut ok too, but I've not tried it yet.
