ColossalCon takes place every summer at Kalahari Waterpark in Sandusky, Ohio. I’m always interested in seeing cosplay music videos from the event (see the 2016 video here) because the setting is unique and many people adapt complex costumes into bathing suit versions. YouTuber mineralblu captured several of the ensembles — including a lot of mermaids — at the event, and as usual, I like seeing the creativity on display. One cosplayer even has a wig enhanced with LEDs, while another has a prop with smoke effects.
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.
