No Vibranium Required for Nakia’s Weapons from Black Panther
Nakia isn’t a Dora Milaje in Black Panther, but that doesn’t mean she’s unarmed. Shuri gives her vibranium chakrams to use, and they have the signature blue glow of the metal. Maker GiveWave Studios made one of the weapons using blue LEDs in place of vibranium, and they’re a fine substitute. The above video shows a timelapse for constructing the chakram, soldering and adding the electronics, and assembling all the elements.

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.
