What You Need to Know Before DC's Event Leviathan

What You Need to Know Before DC's Event Leviathan

Summer days are here again, and longtime comic book fans know what that means: it’s event time! DC Comics has had a long tradition of setting up universe-sweeping events that often have long term effects on the heroes and villains that are part of them. This summer marks the start of a huge event with Lex Luthor at the forefront called the Year of the Villain. Part of that far-reaching storyline is helmed by Brian Michael Bendis and the Superman story he’s been setting up in Action Comics all year, Event Leviathan. Someone is taking out all the clandestine organizations in Metropolis and beyond, and no one knows who or why. Rumors swirl that “Leviathan” is behind the attacks, and they’re just getting started.

Use NeoPixels with Raspberry Pi and Python

Use NeoPixels with Raspberry Pi and Python

We’ve covered NeoPixels in The MagPi before, with some wonderful cosplay lights and Christmas tree lights, which we’ve used ourselves. It’s been a long time since we’ve controlled any NeoPixels with a Raspberry Pi, though – so long that there’s actually a newer and much easier method for doing it. We thought it was high time to try this out, and get a display cabinet lit up fancily in the process.

You’ll need NeoPixel lights Circuit wire Push-button 470 Ω resistor 5V power source Soldering iron Choose your NeoPixels There are many configurations and types of NeoPixels that you can buy. For our display cabinet, we chose two quarter-circle stripes of lights that hold 15 LEDs a piece. This allowed us to create a little semicircle in our cabinet for a bit more interesting coverage. If you have a big cabinet and wish to line the entire thing, you can always get a long flexible strip of NeoPixels. You can even get single lights, or smaller circles of NeoPixels. The only thing you need to make sure you do for all the NeoPixel types is correctly count the number of LEDs in your system. We’ll tell you why in a few steps’ time. Choose a location What do you want to light up? For our project, a shelf of figurines was all we wanted to illuminate, and so we decided to add the lights above the shelf – attached to the ‘ceiling’, as it were. Our display cabinet we set up to add lights to. The top contains a series of red ranger ‘ranger keys’ from the TV show Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger You’ll need to take into consideration light coverage and camouflage in your display cabinet. Think about sight lines if you want to keep them hidden from specific angles, and look to see if your display cabinet has anything to aid in adding lights – the IKEA Detolf has a little plug on the top for wires, for example. There also needs to be access for the Pi to control the lights, so keep that in mind. Assemble your circuit We’ve put together a handy circuit diagram below for you to follow along to. There are a few important things to note, though, to make sure you understand it. The NeoPixel strips have three pads on them: one for 5 V power, one for ground, and a ‘data’ port.…

Death Stranding Collector's Edition Is in Stock, But Hurry

Death Stranding Collector's Edition Is in Stock, But Hurry

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use. Death Stranding is a PS4 exclusive set to release November 8. It comes from Kojima Productions, a development house headed up by Metal Gear’s Hideo Kojima. What we know about the game comes mostly from a series of bizarre trailers that have been released over the past few years, starring the likes of Norman Reedus, Mads Mikkelsen, Lea Seydoux, and Guillermo del Toro. The most recent Death Stranding trailer gave us a better understanding of some of the gameplay mechanics, but ultimately the game is still a classic Kojima head-scratcher. Continue reading…
