fxmech shared an update about a tremendous (both meanings) project for Comicon 2014 in the Adafruit Forums. Last year, staff and community alike noticed the use of Adafruit electronic components in the WIRED Giant Robot at Comicon 2013. Well, we were blown away to learn about this year’s even more challenging project:
For weeks we have been working on this build of a 14ft tall creature for Comicon 2014. Pretty much every electronic device was built around Adafruit products so I thought it appropriate to share here. I haven’t watched the video series so I don’t know what got edited out but I spoke a ton in the raw footage about Adafruit products used in the build…. ENJOY!
