The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be here soon, and if you’re thinking about making a Spidey costume of your very own, YouTuber Crazydog500 has three how-to videos to help you put one together. You have to obtain the pattern yourself and get it printed, and then Crazydog goes through the step by step of making the mask and attaching shoes for a seamless look. The end result is a costume that looks a lot like what you see on the screen, and even if you’re not planning to dress like Spider-Man, it’s a good overview for different techniques.
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.
