If you head to Salt Lake Comic Con over Labor Day weekend, don’t be alarmed if you see a war troll among the attendees. It is not, in fact, a villain from Lord of the Rings, but a costume by Brantley Carter, a.k.a. Artwork BC. He made a large troll costume that looks to be inspired by the orcs from Middle-earth. The ensemble includes a PVC pipe frame to add bulk, textured skin and body parts, armor, a helm, and a mask element. The combination of materials makes the troll unique and intimidating.

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.
