Eink, E-paper, Think Ink – Collin shares six segments pondering the unusual low-power display technology that somehow still seems a bit sci-fi – http://adafruit.com/thinkink
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.

Outstanding! I’m glad other people are making these. They get you SO MUCH attention if you wear one out and about. At public events, I recommend turning the el-wire off if you want to walk further than 5 meters without being asked for your photo 🙂
I use wire coat hangers to make mine, for a really rigid frame. I heat the ends with a cigarette lighter and melt mounting sockets into the helmet. This also allows for the creation of hinges. My masks have articulated jaws, with chin straps and rubber bands to pull against. This works particularly well with the T-Rex if you make roaring noises while working the jaw 😛
