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:
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.
