Making a Dystopian Cyberpunk Slum for Necromunda #cyberpunk
One of my favorite corners of the Warhammer 40,000 universe is the hive cities of the planet Necromunda. Hive cities are unimaginably huge. Think of the footprint of a modern city here on Earth. Now expand that vertically until it reaches the clouds and that’s what a hive city is like.
These cities are also socially stratified, with the richest, noble houses living in the upper spires of the hive all the way to the freaks, outcasts, gangs, and opportunists that live in the bowels of the city, called the underhive. Each city houses at least a billion people.
In this Eric’s Hobby Workshop, he builds a cyberpunky Necromunda game board and attempts to convey some of the immensity and destitution of an underhive in his finished piece.
The resulting board is amazing.
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.
