MakerTron Arduino Smart Flight Suit #3DPrinting

Justin Shook shared on Thingiverse:

MakerTron Arduino Smart Flight Suit

Like my design in the Pinshape 3D printing contest in order to vote! https://pinshape.com/items/11384-3d-printed-makertron-arduino-smart-flight-suit

In order to help the MakerTron rebuild their population, I thought I would give them flight! This jetpack and wing suit was specially designed with the best of Earth’s open source technology, Arduino. I know it probably isn’t as advanced as the MakerTron’s original technology, but I think it will do for now. This specific chip is an Adafruit Flora which is the perfect size to pair up with the MakerTron Core. On the bottom of the jetpack is a micro-USB port for updating software as we develop more gadgets for the robot. I’m still working out all of the flight dynamics for the rocket boosters, so if anyone has experience in rocketry or is a current employee at NASA, go ahead and drop me a line at [email protected]! The next “smart” upgrades on the list for MakerTron are shown below:

GPS Location

Accelerometer

Color Sensing

Light Sensing

Bluetooth Connectivity

As for the other parts, I made sure to put a lightweight, 500 mAh, lithium polymer battery in his jetpack to make sure he doesn’t have to be plugged in. The RGB LED lights on the wings were specially designed for night time flight or for use in the dark, lonely depths of our universe. They are really, really bright! I’m working on the detailed assembly instructions right now, but in the meantime, like this design and vote for this entry in the MakerTron contest! I would love to use that resin 3D printer to bring more awesome creations to the Pinshape Community. When the assembly instructions are ready, they will be available at http://ShookIdeas.com. Cheers! Justin Shook

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!


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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
