How do you build a massive ED-209? Ghostlight crafted the robot for their reshoot of RoboCop — stilts and all. Their project didn’t have quite as high a budget as the 1987 film did, but still, they used their resources to the best of their abilities and crafted the effects and props for their fan film. Their ED-209 is a full seven feet tall and made practically. They tackled the build despite the fact that they’d never done anything like it before. Watch the above video to see the materials and how ED-209 complied and came together.
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.
