It should be no surprise that The Hacksmith, the guy who made a 30 pound Hulk glove is capable of making a ridiculous Doomfist Gauntlet from Overwatch. His YouTube feed is full of mammoth projects like this. The intense build is documented in the above video, and you can see the result: a 2,600 pound punch. Hey, if you’re going to all the trouble of making an oversized weapon from a video game, you may as well be able to “use” it properly.

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.
