micro:bit Controlled Halloween Cloud @microbit_edu #microbit #microbitlove #microbitmonday

Lorraine underwood put together a “dark, scary cloud” that brings the spooky storm. We really dig the hand drawn design below – via hackster.io

It’s Halloween time and I’ve decided to make myself a costume.

I needed one that wouldn’t limit my movement, vision or be too hot to wear – my two year old still has a lemming sense of direction and needs to be rescued and picked up several times in just one hour.

So I thought of a costume I could hold… a balloon maybe… a cloud balloon.. a cloud balloon with flashing lightening??

I did a quick Google search and found Glowy Zoey’s fantastic toddler in a cloud with real rain costume: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve9fYIcbou0 which made me think this could look really cool.

Full project breakdown!


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.
