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!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  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

  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! http://raster.posterous.com/adapumpkin

  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:

    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!
