  2. Mechanical: Jack in the box crank mechanism??

  3. Electronic/Software: Audio/Video delay issues

    Halloween Props
    The cable won't have that big an impact on the sync. If the sound is THAT off that's it is visibly noticeable, there's something else going on. Perhaps some sort of buffering issue with the player, maybe?
  4. Electronic/Software: Singing Busts help

    Halloween Props
    Yeah, you'd need to do some video editing/masking work. Not impossible... but not a quick 5 minute job, either. The last few frames at the very end of the sequence could be used.

  6. Electronic/Software: Aduino malfunctions when power is applied to relays

    Make sure you have diodes across your relays. Otherwise, the back EMF from the coils will do all sorts of nasty things to your circuits... unwanted behavior.

    Halloween Props

  8. Electronic/Software: How to park a motor with an Arduino?

    Halloween Props
    You definitely do NOT need an H-Bridge. I've got TWO tutorials: and Those should provide lots of information.
  9. Prop Showcase: First time building a pirate treasure chest from pallet wood

    Halloween Props
    That is really outstanding! We built a treasure chest years ago with similar construction, but a bit smaller. I've always been kicking myself for not figuring out how to put avast (see what I did there?) amount of treasure inside. You've inspired me! Great idea using the great stuff to...

    Hey, gang!* I've just finished up a short how-to video dealing with the newer BTX-style PC power supplies. They are a little bit of a different beast and so I thought this would be useful. Check it out!
  11. Mechanical: Wiper Motor -- from repeating to on/off motion (without relays?)

  16. The Singing Pumpkin - customer service beyond expectations

    Merchant Reviews
    I just picked up some more animations, including the "intermission" animation. Not only are these things simple to use, but John himself jumped online for a quick chat via Facebook to offer some advice on chaining the animations together with the intermission animation to extend the show. Great...

    Product Reviews
    I picked up a copy of the Yo Ho Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life For Me) singing pumpkin animation a while ago, but only just got around to getting a projector that fit my budget. I can't WAIT to get it set up for our display this year. The animation quality is top notch, and the individual...
