How cool is this? Would you drive around in a wooden Beetle? Via Technabob.
This awesome Volkwagen Beetle is made of wood so you can bet it takes a lot of wood cleaner instead of a good waxing. It was made by Momir Bojic, from Bosnia. He doesn’t have to worry about rust so much as termites.
Momir used 50,000 pieces of sculpted oak to make the shell of this car, which covers both the exterior and interior. That wood doesn’t cover the headlights or taillights, so it’s street-legal. Getting into an accident and hitting this car would be like hitting a tree. I’m not sure if that is better or worse, but the splinters are a real killer.
Obviously Momir varnished the whole thing and even made himself a matching hat to wear while driving the car. Pretty cool.
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.
