Tested made quite the showing when it came to costumes at Comic-Con. Besides Adam Savage’s ensembles (like this Judge Dredd costume), they also created a wearable rancor costume based on the creature seen in Return of the Jedi. Effects artist Frank Ippolito came up with the design for the rancor costume and built it from scratch in less than a month. It’s mostly made from foam, and as you can see in the above video, it’s surprisingly flexible.
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.
