Keep Drinks Cold with This Han in Carbonite Fridge

Frank Ippolito has seen a couple versions of a fridge that looks like Han Solo frozen in carbonite from Star Wars, but he wanted to do something more precise. Using some references and downloads from threads at The Replica Prop Forum, Ippolito assembled the assets — including panels, greeblies, and electronics (when he made his own thread at The RPF documenting his build, he included links for all the assets). The project started with molding the Han parts to a table. As Han was being cast, Ippolito embedded waterproof red LEDs in so that it could look like Han was melting. Learn more in the above video.

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.

  1. Awesome creativity. If such refrigerators are kept in public place it would definitely catch everyone’s attention. Something unique and ideal. Keep it up!
