After five months of work, Vicente Gomez’s, a.k.a. Vincent Bon Vic – Props on Facebook, StarCraft build is just about complete. This complex, detailed build of Jim Raynor’s massive armor is so polished it’s hard to believe it began from a pile of bright green and orange EVA foam floor mats. You can view a picture of the costume’s humble beginnings just below.
Vincent formed the material into shape — I can’t even imagine how much smoothing he had to do. With the brunt of the work done, all Vincent has left is to program the LEDs on the suit.
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.
