The 3D Printed Future of Halloween #ElectronicHalloween

The 3D-printed future of Halloween @kernelmag:

You know that super awesome Halloween costume idea you’ve had for the past five years but still haven’t had the time to put together? The one that would take weeks of design, fabrication, and a ridiculous amount of skill? Whether you want to be Iron Man or Samus Aran, creating a jaw-dropping costume can seem nearly impossible, but this year could be the year that you make it happen—and without all the moulding, casting, and pouring that normally goes into such projects.

Welcome to the magical world of 3D-printing.

3D printers come in all shapes and sizes, from bread-box-sized units to machines large enough to crush a man, but they all do the same thing: conjure solid objects out of thin air. Well, thin air and some plastic. The resulting items are typically rough and far from finished, but they provide the foundation for a costume revolution that is just beginning to take shape.

Take Neomek for example. The company specializes in 3D-printing solutions for businesses, but it couldn’t resist the temptation to engage in a little Halloween mischief by turning Vice President Jim Clark’s son into a disturbingly realistic version of Dr. Finkelstein from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas.

Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

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.
