RWBY’s Ruby Rose carries an impressive scythe that it is also a high caliber sniper rifle; it’s called Crescent Rose. When cosplayer Mangoloo, one half of Labinnak and Mangoloo Cosplays/L&MC, made her Ruby Rose ensemble, she fully committed to crafting Crescent Rose. She traced the shape onto paper and designed a mechanism so the scythe would transform using a spring loaded base. At around six feet tall and four feet wide (when fully extended), the weapon is massive and not light — that makes the mechanism that much more notable.
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.
