    I am sure I could tell you but need a pic or something. It is probably a variation of a stalker costume.

    I had the same problem. I think it is a safety mechanism in it. If it comes in contact with anything as it is swaying it won't sway anymore. You just have to take the batteries out for a minute or...

    It is probably just a bit clogged. Just let it run for several hours, it might clean it self out. Use an auto timer and set it for the max run time.

    I am doing peppers ghost this year as well. It can be really cool effect. It will work with thin plexiglass as long as you can keep it from flexing. Look up plastics for your area. These places will...

    Yeah don't let them sit empty. The pumps will rust and seize on you. Just put fluid in it, use an auto timer and set it like you want it to run. Then just let it sit for a couple of hours. Mine do...

    You don't need resistors on every LED. I do a ton with LED's and I never use resistors on individual LEDS. You would run a series - parallel circuit. I would use variable resistor so you can adjust...

    Typically you epoxy a small round mirror on the shaft of a small motor at an angle. Then you can vary the speed of the motor with a varable resistor. This is for safety as well as for...

    You shouldn't have to take them apart or anything. I do this every year with my fog machines. I have 2 of the standard sized foggers and 1 big one 1000 watt, I think. They are not the pro models,...

    Make sure I am understanding this right. Basically you want to put a projector up somewhere, in a tree or something and project onto the ground. This could work but I think you will have a couple of...

    No, that isn't it. I will probably have to go through my web cache to find it.... The one I am talking about did everything automatically, but only did the mouth and the eyes. You would just plug in...

    I like it. It is simple but will look cool walking up to your house or whatever. I would put something over the piston to lessen the noise of it going off.

    I was looking through here the other day and saw a really cool controller for a 3 axis skull build. It was an auto talker but also had random eye movement and was only $30. I forgot to bookmark it...

    I have been making these for a couple of years now, with that exact kitty litter container as well as buckets. They work well, and are cheap to make. I even made on in a full sized 4' rolling trash...

    You are in a hard place there. The time thing is where you are going to have trouble. One way or another there has to be a mechanism that does that. It could be mechanical or electronic. The...

    A word of warning for everyone. Almost all wall warts work the same way a Malibu transformer does. It works under load, so ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, measure the voltage of your wall wart before you...

    Usb is definitely not a good idea. Usb is very low power, and cables, ends, and hubs are expensive (relative to other solutions).

    I am working on something more substantial for everyone. I am...

    I saw that one but didn't use it's input because it didn't say if it was solid core or not. There is a difference. Distance also plays an issue.

    Ok when it comes to my design I am talking about only powering leds and lamps. I can make it power other things but I will have to adjust the design. For this purpose "Lighting" that is what I am...
