Glowing Warhammer 40K Power Claw Made with Adafruit Products
Warhammer 40k features a number of Power Weapons, including the Lightning Claw. Instagram user mechanought incorporated the prop into his W40k build, which was already detailed and complex. The Lightning Claw part began with fabric covered in pieces of armor made from Worbla. Then for the claw portion of the glove, mechanought attained a glow with Adafruit products such as NeoPixel sticks inside a pearly, somewhat opaque Worbla. He used a soldering iron to weld the sharp edges of the Worbla together and wired everything to come up with the above look.
8-6-2021 (August 6, 2021) is the Snakiest day of the year and it’s also this year’s CircuitPython Day! The day highlights all things CircuitPython and Python on Hardware. See you there!
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.
