If you’re going to dress as Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa from the Return of the Jedi era, you should go all out and make a speeder bike. That’s what Jesse Wellens and Carmella Rose did for Halloween year. Well, to be clear, they rode a custom speeder bike made by Lithium Cycles. It’s designed with mirrors underneath, so it kind of looks like they’re levitating. The above video makes riding around New York on a speeder bike look like a ton of fun — especially once they start getting chased by the Empire and Iden Versio from Battlefront II.
Watch this video to see a quick look at the making of the speeder bike:
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.
