Realistic dinosaur costumes are few and far between, and when they’re done right, they’re special. This Tyrannosaurus rex outfit looks incredibly real — like it just escaped from Jurassic Park. The skin texture and mobility is impressive. It was made by On-Art Corporation, a Japanese company that wants to make something like Jurassic Park called Dino-A-Park — but obviously with all the genetic re-creation stuff. Instead, they went for creating lifelike dinosaur costumes made from carbon fiber. Though they look massive, the costumes can be worn by a single person and only weigh around 84 pounds.
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.
