NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Overwatch Prop Gun Lucio’s Blaster Pt.2 @adafruit @johnedgarpark
Want to keep on building that prop gun from Overwatch that you love so much? You know the one — It’s Lucio’s blaster! In part 1, we made the individual functions — lights, music, and sound effects — come to life. Now, check out my guide for part 2 in which we integrate those circuits into one system.
Build your own Overwatch Lucio Blaster! Use Arduino, NeoPixels, MP3 Music Maker, Audio FX board, and a 20 watt amplifier to drive the impressive blasting sound effects, lights, and music from this Overwatch prop gun! In part two, combine the electronics into an integrated system.
First, we combine the lights and music:
Then, we add in the sound effects, power supplies, and more!
Stay tuned for part three: things are gonna get small.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
