The popularity of the Star Wars saga means there are countless cosplayers who dress as characters from the films and television series and come up with their own original designs. Beat Down Boogie has been grabbing video of cosplayers at conventions for five years, and they’ve recently released a supercut that shows the incredible range of costumes they’ve seen from the galaxy far, far away in that time. It includes all sorts of Twi’leks, Sith, different takes on Boba Fett, Artoo, members of the 501st and Rebel Legions, and much more. There are six minutes of Star Wars costumes, and I love seeing the variety and creativity on display.
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.
