Comic-Con rolled into San Diego last weekend and took over downtown. The convention is one of the biggest in the United States, drawing in over 125,000 attendees. The vast number of people walking around make the aisles of the convention center and the sidewalks surrounding it hard to navigate, but that doesn’t stop cosplayers from showing up in force. I imagine that wearing a costume at Comic-Con takes a considerable amount of planning because it would make getting around more difficult than usual, but it’s not a deterrent. I saw mash-ups, costumes from Inside Out, costumes from Star Wars, costumes from iZombie, and more.
Sadness, Inside Out
Scout troopers, Star Wars
Captain Rex, Star Wars Rebels
Frank and Athena, Tomorrowland
Imperator Furiosa, Mad Max: Fury Road

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.
