Avengers: Infinity War came out on Friday and ruled the box office. You won’t find any spoilers here, just an appreciation of Jerry Almond’s excellent and intimidating Thanos costume. He wears a muscle suit underneath the clothes (photo below) to bring the Mad Titan’s massive form to life, and he has a mask and Infinity Gauntlet to go with it. The detailed Thanos mask is silicone and from Evolution Masks; Almond added some violet paint to the mask so it would better match the skin tone of his costume. You can see how flexible it is in this Instagram video.
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.
