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.
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.
