Cyber Tank Girl #AdafruitWeekendProject #ElectronicHalloween
Last year Becky Stern made a kickass Tank Girl costume. This Halloween, you can too with this cyber-tastic Adafruit tutorial!
Electronic Halloween Twenty Fourteen! I’ve admired the comic character Tank Girl for ages, and this year I wanted to update her post apocolyptic Outback look for the 21st century.
This guide covers the different elements I used to make this costume, linking to relevent tutorials where applicable.
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.
