League of Legends’ Sivir has a chakram that, like most props in the game, is as large as life. Volpin Props built a version of the weapon for Riot Games to display at PAX East. After developing reference images, he crafted one blade section to duplicate to create all four sections. He made them from tooling board and SmoothCast 320 resin before polishing them and casting them. As usual, the complete process is documented at Volpin Props’ blog.

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.
