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!

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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
