Bob Clagett Makes a Star Wars-Inspired Server Rack/Media Center #Star Wars
Bob Clagett of I Like to Make Stuff wanted to build a new server rack for his office. But being the Star Wars freak and YouTube maker that he is, he didn’t want to make just any ol’ rack. He decided to marry the rack with a media center/video monitor. He decided to create what looks like some sort of Star Wars ship or base monitoring station.
To complete the project with plenty of suitably futuristic greeblies, he decided to team up with Star Wars prop fanatic Brian of The Smuggler’s Room. The results are pretty great and there is plenty of room for audio, video, and server hardware expansion.
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.
