In this project we’re making Rat Catchers Communicator from The Suicide Squad.
The Rat Communicator is a device used by Ratcatcher to control and manipulate swarms of rats.
We were inspired by The Suicide Squad to 3D print the device and light it up with an Adafruit Circuit Playground Express.
CircuitPython is great for beginners who are looking to use NeoPixels color LED lights in their cosplay projects!
With the LED animation library, you can experiment with different effects using demo code.
With CircuitPython you can quickly make changes and see your projects update in real time on just about any computer.
The parts are 3d printed using different colors of filament. The various pieces are joined together with some hardware screws.
Easily power up the wand with an Adafruit Micro-Lipo Charger!
Simply plug it via USB cable into a USB port and our Cylindrical rechargeable battery into the JST plug on the other end. There are two LEDs - one red and one green. While charging, the red LED is lit. When the battery is fully charged and ready for use, the green LED turns on. Seriously, it could not get more easy!
Components are housed in the handle and dome. The built-in LEDs on the Circuit Playground illuminate the dome and the battery is stored inside the handle.
The parts are 3D Printed with an easy to assemble parts.
