A Darth Vader Costume That Comes with Force Lightning
Darth Vader is costume I see executed with varying degrees of screen accuracy on a regular basis. I’ve come across a few different steampunk Vaders, a princess Vader, and other versions of the character. But this is the first time I’ve seen a cosplayer show the moment when Emperor Palpatine unleashed Force lightning upon Vader. The lighting effect can be achieved with LEDs, and you could rig a little fog machine to simulate smoke.
See what the Force lightning and smoke look like in this video by Noel Alexander Costill.
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.
