REMINDER – CONTEST: Make an “Electronic Halloween” graphic

CONTEST: Make an “Electric Halloween” graphic, each day this month we’re going to feature a cool project from around the web that has electronics AND has something to do with Halloween. We don’t have a graphic for this effort so we’re going to have a contest. Just make a graphic for “Electronic Halloween” and post a link to it in the comments. We’ll pick our favorite one and use it for our posts!

THE PRIZE: $150 in the Adafruit store!

DETAILS: Make the graphic (at the most) 600 x 600, it will be used on each post here for the projects we feature! Make it Creative Commons BY-SA 3.0. Deadline, let’s say October 8th!

Good luck!

  1. Ok, here’s an entry for ya … .

  2. Electronics Halloween Graphic. Nice and simple.

  3. Cool Idea! Always looking for new fun ways to celebrate!

    Here’s my submission. I’ve made two different versions of this… I just couldn’t decide between traditional colors or Halloween colors.

    Happy Halloween!

  4. Just had a quick look at the submissions, and if I was going to try to make a design, I would want it to look like Paul Asselin’s. Nice work!

  5. This has been fun! Jason and I seem to have had the same idea of using LED symbols for jack-o-lantern eyes 😀

  6. here’s my submission
    some electronics skull and crossbones
    i could make it both LEDs or caps if you like

  7. @Renee: Diode eyes were just too obvious! 🙂

    P.S. My JackOSchematic works.

  8. My quick logo hack uses the OSHW logo:

  9. Another one!

  10. I made this for you.

  11. here are two more from the other thread!

    this is my favourite computer / electronic halloween picture from the war driving days…

  13. May as well throw my hat in the ring!


  14. Here’s my submission

  15. Here is my design: I thought why just make a 2D graphic? Why not make a graphic that actually works if etched. And that’s what i did:


    Video of it as a PCB (working):

    Post with instructions and info on what i did:

    Hope you enjoy it as much as i did designing it and making it. (Etched my first board because of this competition :P)
    The logo is also a Vector so, any size is possible, transparency is possible, colour change easy.

  16. Hope you like it!

  17. Her is my bloody electric entry! 🙂

  18. Here’s my entry. It is also available as an SVG.
