Halloween is just a little over a week away! This year, I thought I’d actually put together a costume and make a 3D printed prop to go with it. I got inspired by Kirby G’s Instructable to cosplay as Fix It Felix Jr. from the Disney movie, Wreck-It-Ralph. Thingiverse user Giuseppe uploaded a design of Fix It Felix’s hammer but I wanted it to actually make sounds. So I designed the hammer in Fusion 360 and used an Adafruit Audio FX sound board, amplifier and speaker to make it play sound effects. Check out my learning guide for a full list of parts, circuit diagram and assembly instructions. I think this is a great project for anyone who’s looking to add sound effects to their cosplay props.
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.
