Nerf guns are suited for all sorts of modifications, including Captain Cold’s gun. Redditor twinzlol made a replica of the DC Comics villain’s frosty weapon by painting and enhancing a toy weapon. To make the chamber look sufficiently icy, twinzlol used hot glue. He painted the cylinder and applied hot glue over it to make a frosted, frozen effect. He wants to eventually add a coat of the seasonal window spray that makes it look like the frost is cracking. Another Redditor suggested applying clear superglue and sprinkling on baking soda or salt for a snowy effect. Whatever methods twinzlol ends up using, I think we can all agree the build looks cool so far.
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.
