Wave Shield Projects for #electronichalloween

Using an Adafruit Wave Shield in a halloween project is a no-brainer.  There is no easier way to add sound effects and music to a costume or decoration.  Here is a short list of a few halloween related projects that use the Wave Shield, just to give you a bit of inspiration.

“Star Mario” Halloween costume.

With a bit of hacking a $1 plastic pumpkin is upgraded: a sensor embedded in the nose detects when people get close and will play scarey sounds and animates LEDs on the face.

My absolute favorite costume.  The robot costume that responds when treats are added.

Another amazing Mario costume.

This is just a very very small list of ideas people have come up with for costume and decoration ideas that use the Adafruit Wave Shield.  Pick up your own Wave Shield in the Adafruit store and share your ideas with us!
