Interactive Halloween thunder effects #electronichalloween

Interactive Halloween thunder effects from Brian Enigma:

The device is comprised of two boxes, sep­a­rated across the room and con­nected by a four-conductor tele­phone cable. Next to the entry­way is the “brain” box. This is connected to the LED strip above the garage door. It houses the Arduino and sound gen­er­at­ing hard­ware (Wave Shield). It is also hooked up to a small stereo. On the other side of the room is the “remote con­trol.” This is the box with but­tons for pick­ing a set of ambi­ent light­ing colors as well as the hid­den foot switch.

The tele­phone cable pro­vides power and ground, but also has a “sense” line, hooked up to an analog-to-digital con­verter on the Arduino. Because of the resis­tor matrix in the box, each but­ton will return a dif­fer­ent volt­age back through the sense line. If you have used iPhone or Android head­phones with inte­grated vol­ume and answer but­tons, this is the exact same con­cept but blown out to four but­tons and a foot switch….

Join Adafruit on Mastodon

Adafruit is on Mastodon, join in! adafruit.com/mastodon

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.

Join us every Wednesday night at 8pm ET for Ask an Engineer!
