If you’re going to dress like Magneto from X-Men, it’s only appropriate for your helmet to be magnetic. Tumblr users vasyavzdroihev and jiyouh made the rough shape of the helmet from foam and paper tape. They installed neodymium magnets on the top of the helmet and covered the foam with “epoxy soaked glass fiber fabrics.” They then added putty and polished the helmet until it was smooth before adding trim made from lightweight PVC.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
