You can become more cyborg than human with a lot of time and lots of scavenged computer and computer accessories parts. That’s so much easier than time-traveling to the future! Instructables user M.C. Langer came up with this ensemble and said he raided junkyards, computer technical service sites, and trash cans to find everything from screens to scanners to keyboards. The more raw material the better. He incorporated all the recycled parts with LEDs and more to make a very cool costume. To see an example of his resourcefulness, check out this list of materials for the battle vest:
– A scanner
– Two old PC speakers
– LCD DELL screen back section
– PC screen base
– MAC screen base
– Printer piece
– Thermo top
– Battery box (for 4 AA batteries)
– Three green LEDs
– Metallic case of an old alarm clock (with de glass)
– Deodorant cap
– Plastic bottle cap with nozzle
– Metallic angles
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
