Make a Dune Sandworm Puppet to Go with Your Fremen Costume

If you’re going to dress like Paul Atreides or any Fremen from Frank Herbert’s Dune, you should carry around a sandworm, a.k.a. Shai Hulud. Instructables user caitlinsdad has shared details on how to make a puppet version you can carry around on your arm. They incorporated an animatronic motion inspired by this robotic gripper, which means it has smooth devouring action — on display in the above video.

For the inside of the mouth and the sandworm’s teeth, caitlinsdad turned to simple supplies:

I used a red magic marker to “paint” on the inside of the mouth segments. I could have used a different color fabric when I sewed the mouth segment covers but I didn’t have any thin red fabric handy.

To simulate all of the crysteeth, I dabbed hot glue. I think drops of white painter’s caulk or 3D fabric paint would have worked better but I didn’t want to wait overnight for it to dry.

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.
