Marvel’s latest film, Guardians of the Galaxy, has turned a bunch of outlaws/heroes into household names. Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord, is the leader of the group. He doesn’t have an elaborate costume, but he does have a cool helmet and Helagak has already made pepakura and 3D print files so everyone can make a Star-Lord helmet.
YouTuber alwaystimstime built the beauty you see in the above video. It’s made from EVA foam, wooden skewers like you’d use for kabobs, and a little bit of PVC pipe. In an extremely resourceful move, he used pink and yellow plastic clipboards for the lenses.
Here’s a bit of what the model looked like before Helagak finished it:
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.
