Armor can be made from so many materials – it always surprises me. I know I’ve shared several tutorials already on this subject, but I’ll continue to do so to convince everyone (and myself) that you don’t have to own fancy equipment or spend a lot of money to make convincing armor. This visual tutorial by EnjiNight will show you how to use paper mache and craft foam to create a lovely piece of chest armor.
Materials include: duct tape, an old t-shirt, newspaper, wallpaper glue, craft foam, and a few other things. The first step includes makinng a duct tape body form over an old t-shirt. You can put the form on a mannequin or stuff it with clothes or plush toys. Here’s a sample of EnjiNight’s tutorial:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
