This is a recreation of a scene that is only on screen for a brief moment in Star Wars: The Force Awakens when we are first introduced to Rey and see her scavenging through a broken down Star Destroyer. I planned and started this build by myself, but by the end it turned into a full on Collab MOC with my good friend Eli Willsea. Total build time, photography, and editing for this MOC was just under 3 weeks in total, quite a short time frame for a build over 7 feet long!
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.
