Game of Thrones has plenty of fodder for cosplayers and propmakers, and Man at Arms: Reforged was inspired by Euron Greyjoy’s axe in season seven. They point out the shape of the Iron Islands axe is complex and sophisticated. To achieve the right kind of shape, the team at Baltimore Knife and Sword had to make a new forge tool from several pieces. It’s a beast of a project just to make the axe, and then they had to add the squid design. They used wrought iron for the pattern. See how everything comes together in the above video.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
