Build a 12 Foot Inflatable Death Star for Your Darth Vader Costume
One of the best ways to celebrate May the 4th is by making stuff, and Caleb crafted a giant, almost fully operational battle station. He used a 12 foot beach ball as his base for the Death Star and essentially made a pillow case for it. Once he added acrylic paint, it transformed into a powerful and bouncy weapon. You can apply his method to a 12 foot beach ball or a smaller, more portable option you can carry around while in costume! Watch the video below to learn how to make your own Death Star.
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.
