This week we’re doing a deep dive on the animatronic cosplay wings. We’ll take a look at the servo mechanism and discuss custom mounts for a set of costume dragon wings. A walkthrough of the learn guide and some tips on using the PowerBoost 1000C.
We want to properly credit some of the inspiration and tutorials we used in this project! The wing-construction technique is inspired by Fancy Fairy Wings and from the Fancy Fairy Wings & Things tutorial available at https://youtu.be/H4wJ42akriA
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.
