Marvel’s Doctor Doom is one of my favorite villains. Victor von Doom has a fascinating history and though he often torments the Fantastic Four and the world at large, I can’t help but respect his intellect. Anyway! If you need to throw together a last minute costume, you could opt for making a quick Doctor Doom mask from cardboard and pairing it with a green scarf and dress or a suit. The cardboard doesn’t look too shabby and will certainly be lightweight and easy to wear. Instructables user gaudopippo shared his techniques and also helpful templates. All you need is cardboard, silver paint, a hole punch, glue, and an elastic band. This is something you could definitely pull together in less than an hour – depending on how long it takes the paint to dry.
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.
