Let’s make an obvious statement: fabric isn’t the same as EVA foam. However, it is possible to add a zipper closure to EVA foam like you would with fabric. This would come in handy for suits of armor and is an alternative to using Velcro or straps to keep armor pieces secured. There’s no sewing required either — you just need Barge cement. Downen Creative Studios has experience with doing this and shared the above 15 step tutorial detailing the ins and outs on Facebook.
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.
