Disney is adapting their animated film Tangled into a musical that will be performed on their cruise line. Being Disney, they have a significant costume department and resources most of us can’t access but the process is still fascinating. I’m always interested in seeing what inspires costume designers and like to learn how they use different textures and elements to not only dress characters but to tell or complement the story at hand. Disney released a video discussing those points with the costume designer for Tangled: The Musical, Paloma Young, and it’s a brief but cool look behind the scenes.
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.
