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 … http://www.flickr.com/photos/jolshefsky/6207935335/ .

  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

  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:

    Logo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ozeraser/6222224588/

    Video of it as a PCB (working): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2K6aeDXkKQ

    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!
