The Punished Props team is headed to Star Wars Celebration this week, and Britt wanted to put together a space-y costume for the occasion. She’s making an original smuggler design and decided to create a foam bracer with a sci-fi appearance. She started with a duct tape model of her forearm and then pieced the bracer pieces together from a little bit of an EVA foam floor mat. Watch the process in the above video, and then take in the below footage to learn how Britt paints the bracer/gauntlet with acrylic paint.
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.
