Costumes from Halloween 2016 are still all over my radar, but I had to flip back the clock to highlight Keith Lapinig’s Halloween project from 2014. He used his 3D printer to craft Hiro Hamada’s armor from Big Hero 6; he created the costume to wear to a Halloween party at Disney Parks. He spent two-three months working on the build — that included teaching himself how to model in 3D because he’d never done it before. Learn all about the process 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.
