Making a Cyberpunk Thermal Katana Using Simple Tools #cyberpunk
It’s cyberpunk weaponry ASMR! In this very impressively done and charming video, maker Xiao Qianfeng builds a very cool-looking “thermal katana,” seen in Cyberpunk 2077, using simple hand- and (a few) power tools.
The video shows her fashioning the main wooden structure out of black walnut, installing LED strip lighting, and molding and casting the resin “thermal” blade. There are some impressive tips in here, like how to create an analog vacuum pump out of a jar and a plastic syringe. Impressive stuff.
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.
