  2. Electronic/Software: Budget Motion detector with timer? Audio?

    Halloween Props
    I looked Arduino up. I have no experience with boards. I have no idea what to do with it to make it work! How do I learn?
  3. Mechanical: Linkage for props

    Halloween Props
    Just a suggestion for metal linkage for your props. I know you can use a variety of things like pvc, metal, aluminum, wood or even string. I just bought these 1/4" thick by 3/4" wide aluminum bars. All 12" long. You can input all kind of sizes or lengths on Ebay. I got 10 for $18 free...
  4. Electronic/Software: Motors

    Halloween Props
    Looking to do a Leering Skeleton prop and something else. I already invested in one wiper motor, 12 volt power and speed control. Looking to go a cheaper route for the second one. I read the cheap synchronous motors are good but get hot???? It will need to run for 4 hours straight. Would...

  7. Electronic/Software: My Squawker Parrot for 2019

    Halloween Props
    Found a Barbossa impersonator on youtube and modified it. Here's a better try for my Parrot next year. Kinda creepy voice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23BxpCzjrY0&feature=youtu.be
  8. Electronic/Software: Budget Motion detector with timer? Audio?

    Halloween Props
    Don't want to buy an expensive control box. I have bought a few outdoor motion lights before and wired them to plug in the wall, using the light sockets to plug props. But is there another way, just as cheap, to have a motion detection device and an accurate timer? The motion light I made...
  9. Electronic/Software: My Squawker Parrot for 2019

    Got me a pirate! Where did you get that pirate talk mp3? I can't find a good mp3 to play that sounds like a parrot. Did you make it?

    Halloween Props
    Setting up a pirate themed room next year in our towns big haunted house. Need ideas on a realistic pirate ship, about 8-10 feet long max. Also any decorating ideas all being pirate related. Already have a hammock and jail planned. Interested in seeing photos of all your past pirate haunts...

    Can you tell me what this is? Where you buy it? That is cool.
  15. Mechanical: Wiper motor quick popup

    Halloween Props
    I was playing around with linkage simulator and stumbled across this configuration. It would really work well with a Picovolt where you can set it start when it is laying down and it would stop then go in reverse back to the laying position. Or let it go ahead and just make one complete turn...
  16. Prop Showcase: Our Little 2018 Yard Haunt

    Halloween Props
    So is the upper torso disconnected from the spine so it can move side to side? And is the main rod ran through the spine at the bottom? I want to build this, just hard to see everything. The fishing line attachment at the top and rubber band placement is a little confusing. I understand if...
  17. Mechanical: Motion simulator

    Halloween Props
    Not sure if it was here or on the old interweb but I once came across a website that simulated motion. You could change stuff around like pulleys and bars and it would show the results. Any ideas? Thanks
  18. Electronic/Software: Rising crucifix help.

    Halloween Props
    Just found this neat little device that just might work. I could set up a wiper motor to wind up a small cable on a spool to rise and then it would reverse to go back down. I wonder if a wiper motor would be strong enough to raise my pvc bar panel with a pirate along for the ride...

    Halloween Props
    Would be interested in the mechanical setup you have on the skeleton up high on the column if you'd be interested in sharing!! Doing a Pirate room next year. Time to start making props. Thanks
  20. Electronic/Software: Rising crucifix help.

    Halloween Props
    Yes that's why I thought pneumatic wasn't the right way to go. It would rise just too fast.
