Check out a great Raspberry Pi pumpkin project shared in the October issue of The Magpi — mocked up, for the sake of time, in a plastic pumpkin with a number of Adafruit components, and experimenting with the Dtronixs MiniPiio ProtoBoard:
The idea was to put some flashing LEDs inside a pumpkin along with a PIR sensor so that when triggered by movement, the LEDs would flash some colourful patterns.
Because I couldn’t get a real one on-time, my pumpkin was built in a plastic bucket… Not that bad really, but could have been better – it was in the shape of a Halloween pumpkin though!
