 Ben Heck’s Halloween SuperHero Wearables, part 2

by John_A

The Ben Heck Show - Episode 258 - Ben Heck's Halloween Superhero Wearables Part 2:  Assembly

It’s time to assemble our DIY superhero Halloween costume — get ready to put the micro-electronics together with the sewn outfit, including the laser-cut logo for Captain Tangent. To save time, Ben has wired together two micro controllers: the Parallax and Atmel ATMega boards. The ATMega will handle the i2c communications with the sensors, while the Parallax board will output the sound. After calibrating with some help from Karen, Ben edits together punch and kick sound effects.

We also get some insight into a different project: a wireless video game controller that will be repurposing parts taken from the EMFCamp 2014 badge. Can Captain Tangent stop the ultimate showdown between Ben and Felix over Linux? Head over to the element14 Community and let us know what your plans are for Halloween, from pumpkins to how you plan to work electronics into your costumes.
