Here’s how I built a full metal expanding Iron Man Mark 5 “suitcase”. This case can unfold into a full metal iron man suit complete with lights, lasers, and fire. The suit is fabricated out of 16 gauge steel that I plasma cut and bent into shape. All the pieces slid into each other to fold down into a suitcase that also features a handle to cary. This was my first time plasma cutting and working the steel in this way so there are definitely things I would change but over all I’m happy with the result and I hope you like it!
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.
