Professor Farnsworth of Futurama is a bit of a mad scientist. Usually in a good way. Cosplaying as the character means makeup and prothestics, and Frank Ippolito created an eerily good realistic take on the cartoon character. He worked with Tested earlier this year to create a Zoidberg costume from the same series, and the Farnsworth build definitely stands up to that one. Ippolito sculpted prosthetics based on a friend of his and cast it from silicone and added makeup. Watch him describe the build process and see him apply the prosthetics to a friend:
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.
