When you’re making a costume that needs precise measurements, making a body form can be an incredible. It’s handy for soft goods like sewn fabric and for helping shape armor pieces. The Tested team needed a body form when they made their Battlefront II messenger droid costume for New York Comic Con, but they used a technique I haven’t seen before to create it. It’s more sophisticated than using duct tape or plaster of paris bandages, using scanning and milled foam. Watch the above video to see how the body form is assembled.
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.
