Don't be intimidated. Start with something simple like singing pumpkins or Mr. Chickens animated tombstone. Your guests will be amazed and it takes your haunt to another level! I run both of these projections and I stand on the sidewalk at Halloween. It's fun to hear the comments. One year I heard someone say, "I heard this guy works at Disney." That was the greatest compliment I could have ever gotten!
@Setarcos. Question: The RGB LED has a positive and a negative side (obviously) the positive side the there tabs are connected, while the neg side has three independent tabs. Do I need to cut the tab that is connecting the three tabs on the positive side? or just solder it on the board as is? Thanks!
Thanks for the update! Great information. I'm still waiting for my RobG boards! Apparently there is one part that is on back order from the supplier. In the mean time, I will relish in your progress :D
Hello fellow haunters! In my never-ending quest to keep money rolling in while unemployed, I'm offering some switch plates for your haunt (or home).
They're $6 each finished (as pictured) or if you want to paint them yourself, they're available for $4 each unfinished.
Send me a PM if you're interested!
I got one from Harbor Frieght. It works great and was not too expensive. It is loud but....I put it in my back yard and run a black 100 foot airline to my front yard. With all the Halloween sounds in the front yard, you don't notice the compressor at all. You can get the airline from Harbor freight as well for a pretty good price. I also use the compressor for my nail gun which is my most treasured prop building tool. It is literally a life saver.
Hi Danski. Your question is a good one. My intention is to change the light from the static white color that they come as to a controllable RGB light that can be synced to music or lightning. The RGB units that are out there are in the $15+ range and won't sync to any type of music so they would still need to be modified. I will post a video of a display that I am following later.
