Making is the final frontier. These are the projects of Adafruit Industries. Its life long mission: to explore strange new projects, to seek out new 3D printed forms and new circuitry, to boldly make what no maker has made before.
Boldly go where no project has gone before with this real working Star Trek Communicator!
The Borg Collective is one of Star Trek’s most recognizable and iconic villains. After seeing them my daughter instantly new what her next Halloween costume would be. Adapting and “assimilating” some other guides, we worked together to assemble a Gemma/Trinket & NeoPixel powered costume.
With this guide you can put together one of your own for your next Halloween or Sci-Fi con.

I really liked the style of the Warp Core Table Lamp done by ThePlanetMike, but at the time, there was very little information about how the lighting was done. Also, the light pattern was not the same as seen in the show. So, I thought I would try doing my own lighting and came up with this. A lot of the pieces are a complete redesign from the original. The chamber and matter injector have some modifications, but are based off the original pieces.

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.
