Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy premieres in theaters tomorrow, August 1st, and I strongly feel that Rocket Raccoon is going to rocket in popularity. The alien is already featured in toys and merchandise for the film, and he’s got an interesting personality that I think will reel people in. Cyber Bunny Cosplay put together a great Rocket costume earlier this year, and she looks amazing as the gun-toting creature. She used fur, modified motorcycle gear, an orange prison-style jumpsuit, and a creepy plastic raccoon mask that she covered with faux fur. That giant gun? Made with a prop weapon base and four water bottles. There’s plenty of creativity on display in her work in progress album for the costume.
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.
