The time for Halloween costume parties is nearly upon us, and if you’re still looking for inspiration, why not start work on a LEGO minifig costume? You can make a LEGO minifig to match your appearance, or you can start with the minifig base and then modify it to be a character from Star Wars, Marvel, or any other LEGO franchise. You can build the costume base from cardboard and glue. The above video from The Q goes through the steps and is helpful for the visuals, but I recommend pairing the video with this written tutorial from Sew Woodsy to help with measurements.
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.
