Horizon Zero Dawn Aloy Electronics with Trinket, LEDs, and More
Lightning Cosplay has been crafting a replica of Aloy’s shield weaver armor from the video game Horizon Zero Dawn. They’ve added extra electronic touches to the skirt portion of the costume using Adafruit products such as Trinket, LEDs, and a battery for Aloy’s power cells. They attached the electronics to power cells they sculpted and cast themselves. You can see how they assembled the pieces and incorporated them into the skirt in the above video.

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.
