Lord of the Rings Eowyn Shield Made from Cardboard and Styrofoam
I don’t know about you, but when I have leftover cardboard, I usually throw it away. This is a terrible decision given that I like to make stuff. I don’t want to encourage hoarding, but spare cardboard comes in handy. I often put it down when I’m crafting to protect surfaces from hot glue and paint, but Arkady Cosplay had bigger dreams. She turned a cardboard, styrofoam, and some googly eyes into a replica of Eowyn’s shield from Lord of the Rings. She even used paint to simulate wood texture.
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.
