When Monster Hunter: World was released at the end of January, I mostly took notice of the cats in the game. It happens. But the game is packed with so much more, including unique armor and weaponry like the Giant Jawblade sword. Rooster Teeth’s Master & Apprentice decided to craft one in real life (without killing any monsters, thank goodness) and used balsa wood to fabricate the 7 foot long sword. Watch how they do it in the above video.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
