Rooster Teeth Tackles Prop Builds with Master and Apprentice
Rooster Teeth has turned their eyes towards making and creating with their series Master and Apprentice hosted by Marcus and Adam. The show is starting to hit YouTube with two episodes out so far, one detailing the making of a Wardcliff Coil from Destiny 2 (above) and one focusing on a retinal scanner from Blade Runner (below). They don’t walk you through the process step by step in detail, but they show enough of how they make the props to inspire and make viewers (at least me) want to create. I especially like how they kitbash components of the props together but also tell you what you can substitute in if you don’t have the right scraps.
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.
