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.

See the power claw in action in this Instagram video and definitely check out mechanought’s Instagram feed for more making of pictures like the ones below.


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.
