This is a remix of the Wearable Infinity Gauntlet. I made it so that when you make a fist, the LEDs and stones brighten for a more realistic effect. I added a battery cage for a rechargeable battery, and a desktop stand with the Avengers Infinity War logo with a switch on the side for desktop use.
Printed at 100% scale and used bondo to link the two palm pieces. I wish I would have printed slightly larger for my hands to fit in a little better. Spray painted with metallic gold and then dusted with gunmetal grey to give a slightly worn affect.
Used a Dremel to carefully carve the stones down to size. Use a lighter to slightly melt the acrylic and make it clear again. I used some sand paper on the backs of the stones to make the led diffuse light a little better from behind. Used super glue to hold in place.
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
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.
