Adam Savage of Tested, formerly of MythBusters, has a passion for cosplay. He loves the community, seems to get into the rewarding feeling of making something that matches an on-screen ensemble (and making in general), and he likes going incognito at conventions. His first stealthy costume of the year is a Knight of Ren from Star Wars. He worked with propmaker Broken Nerd, a.k.a. Darrell Maloney, to make two different Knights of Ren costumes even though we’ve barely seen the characters in the sequel trilogy. Watch the above video for an overview of the making of the costumes.
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.
