As we are getting closer to Halloween I thought I would improve the presentation of the initial project and add a few more effects.
These are as follows;
Mounted the original 3 pairs of Evil Eyes into skull masks,
added pulsating ultra bright green light chain to illuminate the front bay window of the property (to draw in unsuspecting victims!),
added motion detection to trigger sound track playback (to provide maximal frightening effect),
added bi-colour illuminated injection moulded skull,
synchronised all of the above to movement detection at front of the property.
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, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, 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.
