These “holiday” masks look fitting for the halloween season. Shared by mirrortrain on Instructables:

Hi everybody.

When the holidays roll around I start looking forward to obscure and ancient pagan initiation rituals. This year instead of singing mangled xmas carols along with snarling Krampus demons as in years’ past, I decided to blend in. While the long history and craft of the carved Krampus mask is inspiring, I’m also very motivated by new digital aesthetics and wanted this design to possess a kind of virtual darkness. You know- that old, “watch out – I might throw your cell phone into the eternal abyss so I can see you jump after it” holiday cheer. This Instructable includes directions, file sources and tips on making your own contemporary Krampus mask. There’s more elements that you should consider which are standard to Krampus lore; a suit of fur or torn and distressed fabric, boots, a chain belt, an open harvesting backpack filled with bad children, a long thatch of bundled birch, or a staff with a cow bell hanging from the top end to make a racket. I hope you have a fun Krampusnacht, look for one in your area around the first week in December.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!


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.
