Blade Runner Blaster One Day Build with Adam Savage
Adam Savage loves Blade Runner, so he’s made the focus of his most recent installment of his one day build series the snub-nosed blaster from the movie. Like he has with other builds, he starts with an unfinished kit and then assembles and paints it. Kits can be a fantastic option if you don’t want to machine your own parts (and maybe don’t have access to a 3D printer or other tools you need) but still want to scratch a making itch. As you can see in the above video, you can improvise a kit, too, with machined metal parts.
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.
