Adam Driver hosted Saturday Night Live on January 17 and starred in a parody of Undercover Boss. This version, called Star Wars Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base, saw Driver reprise the role of Kylo Ren. The dark side user went undercover as Matt the radar technician to get the real inside scoop on what Starkiller Base employees think of Kylo Ren (the sketch is below in case you haven’t seen it).
In no time at all, there was fan art featuring Matt popping up around social media. It didn’t take much longer for costumes to appear. I’ve seen a few completed ensembles so far and adore how quickly makers have jumped on replicating the look. I’m sure there will be several Matts at conventions this year.
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.
