Halloween Party & Sumobot Tournament

//

This Saturday, 28 October 2017, join us for our 7th annual Sumobot Tournament/Halloween Party. You don’t have to be a member to attend this fun event. Watch autonomous robots try to push each other out of the ring. Costumes are encouraged. (And, of course, all kinds of nerdiness is encouraged — costumewise or otherwise.) Festivities begin around 8:00 pm and last until way after the last robot is left standing.

 

 

The Sumobot Tournament will probably begin around 9:00pm. The party has no end in sight.

Check the calendar on our events page for other upcoming events and workshops.

Lil Ghostbuster costume

//

 

LVL1 community member Tim G. and his wife created this great ghostbusters costume for their son Harper.

I have attached the schematic for the proton pack lights.  I used a 6V lantern battery as part of the pack so I didn’t need a voltage regulator.  The flashlight has a separate 9V battery located in the gun and 6 white LEDs.

I used these plans for the pack:  http://www.gbfans.com/equipment/plans/norm-gagnon/ although many parts had to be swapped out for similar items that were half the size.
The main structure of the pack is made from black coroplast since I had some on hand.  In fact I made the whole pack aside from the straps using items I had lying around.  For sounds I mounted a small mp3 player on the gun and used the 6V battery to power a set of USB powered PC speakers.
