Visit the @GravesendInn Haunted Hotel in Brooklyn, an Interactive #ElectronicHalloween Experience
Gravesend Inn is a fun, interactive, and at time slightly creepy haunted house experience designed by Theatreworks, the resident theatrical organization inside New York City’s City Tech. It combines interactive technology with theatrical elements, meaning at times animatronics, or motion-based environments, alongside real-life actors (do not touch the spooky humans!). Below are some pictures I took of last year’s House, which included upside-down rooms, creepy-calling telephone booths, one-way mirrors, and LCD simulating picture frames, window vantages, and more. The whole thing was topped off with an exit into an actual theater, where you could see the multi-camera & interactive system the admins used to control the House (image below) – there was a delay on one screen between your walking through the House and the capture, so you essentially get to see yourself get spooked!!
I wrote about last year’s House here on my own blog; this year the House runs Oct 20-22 & 27-31 – complete details including times, admissions, and directions can be located here.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Every day this month we’ll be bringing you ideas and projects for an Electronic Halloween! Expect wearables, hacks & mods, costumes and more here on the Adafruit blog! Working on a project for Halloween this year? Share it with us on Google+, in the comments below, the Adafruit forums, Facebook, or Twitter— we’d love to see what you’re up to and share it with the world (tag your posts #ElectronicHalloween). You can also send us a blog tip! Tune in to our live shows, 3D hangouts with Noe and Pedro and Ask an Engineer, featuring store discount codes, ideas for projects, costumes, decorations, and more!
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
