From the Forums: Warewolf and Mad Eye Moody Costumes #WearableWednesday
Thanks to melarky from the Adafruit forums for sharing these fun Halloween costumes that were made using some of the tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System! Check out the full warewolf costume build here and the Mad Eye Moody build here.
Really Simple Animatronic Tail: This project reduces animatronics to its simplest case. Mechanical tails are complex stuff, often involving armatures for bones and cable mechanisms to simulate muscles and tendons. Rather that fighting against gravity, we’ll instead make it our ally. Thinking of the tail as a pendulum, a single small servo and a little math is all it takes. Read more.
3D-Printed Bionic Eye: Poke an eye out with one of your mad scientific experiments? Harness the awesome power of thermoplastic fusion to print a microprocessor powered bionic replacement! It won’t help your vision much, but no one will doubt your mad scientist cred. Read more.
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.
