YouTuber theKylenator went big for Halloween. He crafted a mech warrior costume from cardboard and designed it in such a way that he can hold his kid and make it look like the kid is driving. Yep, it’s basically genius. Costumes like this are great examples of how super fancy equipment and materials aren’t necessary to make an impression – just time and creativity.
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.
