Vaudeville: a 12 Foot Tall Rideable Kinect Controlled Mech
Vaudeville is a massive 12 foot tall rideable robot made by Suidobashi Heavy Industry (which appears to just be a small group of robot builders). Vaudeville comes complete with a cockpit that one person can strap into and the beast is controlled with a combination of handlebars, a Microsoft Kinect, and a smartphone. The group plans to have the mech fully functional by the end of this year.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
