Ryan Scott Miller goes all out to build elaborate wheelchair costumes for his son. He uses the mobility of the wheelchair in the costume design and ensures his son is beyond prepared for Halloween. This year Jeremy gets to be a Ghostbuster driving around the Ecto-1, which of course has light and sound effects. The complex builds often include extending material out and beyond the wheelchair. For the Ecto-1, he constructed a frame from lightweight PVC piping. You can see a couple of in-progress photos below.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
