Pasted Image 10 6 14 7 40 AM

John Guarnero has been foraging through the Adafruit online catalog producing a number of great movie props with some stellar electronic modifications and interactive elements, including this ET puppet with light-up heart:

This ET is a NECA puppet that was modified with the following enhancements.

  • Robe – purchased from Target
  • Fading Heart – 16×24 red LED Matrix panel purchased from adafruit.com
  • Audio – Adafruit wave Shield for Arduino
  • Controller – Arduino Uno R3 purchased from adafruit.com
  • Speakers – Sound bar purchased from staples
  • Lunch Box – Purchased on EBAY.  The lunch box holds all of the electronics and the sound bar.  A small LED was added to the lunch box where the ET finger is.  A 10mm LED was also added to ET’s finger in the NECA puppet.  A motion sensor was added to the lunch box in the top left corner and each motion trigger will play 1 of 7 different phrases.  The heart, finger lights, and audio are all programmed via the Arduino.
