NEW GUIDE: John Park’s Haunted Portrait @adafruit @johnedgarpark #adafruit #halloween
Have you ever wanted to build a spooky, living painting to hang on the wall and freak out your friends? Here’s how! Just take a look at this new guide, the Haunted Portrait, for step-by-step instructions! You’ll use a small, but powerful Raspberry Pi Zero (or any Pi you have on hand) and a spare HDMI TV or monitor mounted vertically in a frame, plus some simple software to run the show.
Based on the Adabox 005 kit, you’ll even be able to adjust the show using the Joy Bonnet’s buttons and thumbstick.
Perfect for Halloween, or any time of year. Just ask my great-great-grandfather up there in the frame. He’d agree.

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.
