A Mini Fog Machine for Cosplay and Props

Sometimes you just need to give a costume or a prop replica a little extra oomph — that’s where a tiny fog machine comes in handy. Valkyrie Studios came up with a tutorial for crafting the device with parts such as a breakout board, a mini fish tank air pump, a LiPo battery, and a few more items. The above video shows the fog machine as part of a costume, and the video below gives a straightforward look at how the little fog machine works. It’s portable enough to attach to the hilt of a prop weapon or to tuck inside a costume. You’d have to refill the fog juice on a regular basis though.

Here’s the machine as made by Coregeek Creations:

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.
