Cosplayer Its Raining Neon completed her first Samus suit earlier this year, and she chose to build a Light Suit from Metroid Prime 2. She enjoyed the process so much, she wants to make at least two more of the character’s suits this year (Samus has quite the wardrobe). She used craft foam for all the armor, and the whole suit only took her less than a month to make. Besides being her first Samus suit, it’s the first project she’s ever used LEDs on. Both the front and back of the suit are lit.
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.
