Trio of Performing Jack-o’-Lanterns #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Using projection onto some 3D printed forms, DIY Machines made this delightful signing setup. Passing trick or treaters can select a song, scare or story from the pumpkin heads.
These three singing squashes are driven by a RaspberryPi and low-cost projector. Your guests pick either a song, scare or haunting tale using the 3D printed control panel and its illuminated arcade buttons. This is housed securely alongside a waterproof speaker and all stands at the end of your drive/garden. This keeps the mains electricity and your projector safely indoors.
