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!



Halloween

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Each day this month (Monday-Friday) we’re going to have a special “Electronic Halloween” post here on Adafruit. It will be a hack, mod, project or something we’ve found that combines all the best things about electronics and Halloween.

View all our Electronic Halloween posts here! From now until 10/31/2012 use the code HALLOWEEN2012 on check out to get 10% off anything in our “EL Wire/Tape/Panel” category.


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.

Join 7,500+ makers on Adafruit’s Discord channels and be part of the community! http://adafru.it/discord

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