Artists who can transform their appearance with makeup always impress me, and Elsa Rhae and Ashlea Henson are two such artists. I make it a point to keep up with their latest projects. I’ve featured both of them on the blog before, and they recently teamed up to work on a project together. They both applied cyborg makeup and came up with two very different looks. You can follow their tutorials and pair the makeup with a bodysuit, armor, or even a dress. The detail of the face paint means you can make it work with just about anything.
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.
