Today marks the release of the new Star Wars film Rogue One. Set before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope, the film introduces new characters such as Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, and Director Krennic. If you’d like to go to theater in style this weekend, StarWars.com has some excellent and relatively easy suggestions for pulling together last minute costumes. Even if you don’t want to go to the movie in costume, reading through the guide will give you an idea of how you can use what you have on hand in your closet to pull together makeshift costumes.
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.
