Here’s an Electronic Halloween themed throwback to this great project write-up from Drew Fustini on the element14 forums.
For Halloween, I thought I would combine the networking and GPIO capabilities of the Raspberry Pi to create a pumpkin with lights and sound which can be controlled via a web page. The Raspberry Pi goes inside the pumpkin along with LEDs and a small speaker:
Thanks very much to my colleague Liz Houtz for letting me use her nicely carved cat-o’-latern. I lined the inside of the pumpkin with a gallon ziplock bag to keep the gear from getting too messy. The power and Ethernet cable went through the carving of the cat’s tail on the backside.
