Last night I took the as-yet-unnamed electronic demon out for a test run at the local pumpkin patch…an opportunity to try out the battery packs and work out any last gremlins. The kids were absolutely fascinated, and more than a few future engineers were hatched!

He’ll be dropping in at the Make: Halloween party on Google+ this afternoon, then might be spotted around Russell Street in Berkeley CA on Halloween night. Rawrrr!

A few additional photos on Flickr, and we previously posted a how-to video and tutorials. Start planning for next Halloween!

    Although, seriously, Phil – *nice* build. Or considering what it is, should that be nasty build??? :)
