Another awesome Adafruit WaveShield project! Father-son team build Samus Aran arm cannon for Halloween!

The first part in the three piece suit, The Arm Cannon is Samus’s primary weapon, we are using a PVC base with EVA foam covering it to get the shape right, then we have an orange acrylic disc covering the barrel, with 12 LEDs inside, half red half yellow, the reason for this is we are going have two different beams to choose from, so while wearing the arm cannon you can switch from power beam to plasma beam, and by including an arduino we can either shoot a charge beam shot, or a standard shot. Galactic Federation troopers Joseph and Tony have bean assigned to Basic Structure and Electronics, Trooper Samual is in command of Painting and Texture.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. not bad, they should make a megaman one 😀

  2. that’s awesome, it even has recoil!!

    props for being an awesome dad too 🙂

  3. That was the most win I have seen in a very long time. And you have guts to go trick or treating as (although unknown to many) a girl.
