Giant Creature at Comic-Con with Adafruit LEDs #WearableWednesday
Here’s a very big wearable… the Giant Creature Project at Comic-Con features Adafruit electronics! Tested.com reports:
At last year’s Comic-Con, the Stan Winston School teamed up with Legacy Effects to build a giant robot to walk the streets of San Diego. This year, they collaborated again to build an even larger creature. Will chats with the team behind this behemoth to learn how it was built and to see how it’s brought to life by puppeteers.
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.
