Creativity in costume making goes through the roof at Dragon Con. Case in point: this Zoltar Speaks costume from the movie Big. Mark C Barlet of The AbleGamers Foundation brought the fortune telling machine to life. He doesn’t have to pick up the machine and move it along as he walks; they’ve designed the machine so it rolls. It’s made to glide, and it’s wired with lighting effects to add a mystical glow. You can see additional photos of the costume below.
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.
