Ultron doesn’t have any strings on him, and in this case, he doesn’t have any metal either. Yesterday I showed you a 3D printed, plastic version of Ultron’s mask, but Villages’s Hope took a different approach. The Thailand based costume makers worked with Walt Disney Studios to prepare Ultron and Ultron sentry costumes for the Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere in Thailand. The suits look a lot like metal, but they were made from EVA foam, PVC leather, and lit with LEDs. They said they wrapped the foam with PVC leather, and though I can’t imagine the amount of labor that involved, the finished product is effective. They could have followed a process similar to what RuffleButtCosplay used when covering craft foam with metallic spandex to simulate metal armor.
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.
