Hackster.io’s Favorite Halloween Hacks of 2023 #ElectronicHalloween

Halloween is nearly here and, I must say, I’ve noticed that people have really embraced the spooky season this year in a way that I haven’t seen since 2019. There are so many great setups that simply driving around local neighborhoods with my kids in the car to check out the decorations has become a total thrill. I’m excited to see what’s in store tomorrow when we go door to door! The Halloween spirit is in full force online as well. Yesterday, Hackster.io published a great list of its 13 favorite Halloween projects and tutorials. It was quite nice to see lots of Adafruit tutorials and products included as well.

Everyone loves Halloween, though the reasons for that adoration vary from one person to the next. Your kids probably love receiving piles of free candy. But if you’re anything like us, you enjoy Halloween because it gives you an excuse to build something fun that isn’t constrained by pesky considerations like practicality. Those of you who agreed with that last sentence will want to check out these Halloween projects.
