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.
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.
