Absolutely stunning build from Studson Studio. The project video shows every step in full detail. Brilliant use of ordinary garbage – pizza box stack savers, train wheels, noise makers, domed apple containers. One of my favorite scenes in all of animated cinema is when Sophie cleans Howl’s castle – tidying and discarding trash in a frenzy, while Calcifer shouts at her in the background! So using trash for this build feels extra fitting.
Howl’s Moving Castle. It’s big (21″ tall). It’s heavy-ish (4.2 lbs). It’s made out of junk (mostly). Help yourself to a full breakfast and strap yourself in to the merry-go-round of life for almost a full hour. In total, this project took roughly 300-400 hours spread over 60 days to complete.
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.
