Funko’s Rick and Morty Portal Gun Is Ready for Cosplay
When I think of places to get costume props, I admit Funko doesn’t come to mind. They’re changing that with their full-size replica of the Portal Gun from Rick and Morty. The roleplay Portal Gun is coming out in November and features light and sound effects (you can see the light effects in the below photo). Funko usually makes vinyl collectibles — you’ve likely seen their Pop! figures in stores and at conventions — so it makes sense for them to extend their reach to make a cartoon prop.
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.
