When Punished Props releases a new how-to, we’re so there. In their latest prop build, Bill Doran goes over making the new Rise of Iron hand cannon prop from Destiny. He uses EVA foam to craft the weapon, while Andrew DFT makes the same item from styrofoam — yay collaborations! This first video is all about fabrication. It’s a lot of cutting out individual pieces from foam and carefully assembling them with glue and contact cement. You can get a link to download the pattern for the hand cannon at Punished Props’ website.
Andrew’s build of the same gun using styrofoam:
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.
