Jason, crankycoder, shared with us his latest Halloween project.
4 Homemade pressure pads are used to trigger a total of 8 pumpkins on servo platforms to watch the kids as they walk by to get their candy!
I wanted to do a bigger halloween prop this year using an arduino. This is the result
Build of Materials
8 mini servo motors
LOTS of aluminum foil
lots of ducttape
big cardboard boxes
16 dollar store pie pans
Lots of marbles (ill explain later)
couple pieces of long RJ45 cable
3 RJ45 Keystone jacks
1 arduino uno
Awesome work, Jason!
