Halloween Costumes with a Built-In Portal Game #ElectronicHalloween
Halloween is sadly over, but some of the costumes that popped up around the web over the weekend must be admired and shared. For example, take this Portal costume. Twitter user Brock Wilbur shared the picture on Halloween, and the costume features Chell with a light-up portal gun and someone running a functional version of the game. Wilbur says the screen on the game actually moves as Chell aims the gun. Incredible. It appears as though the window is lined with EL wire, and they probably used an iPad under a t-shirt to achieve the effect. It’s incredibly creative!

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.
