    Halloween Props
    Folks, Thought I'd share this site I came across where the creator is using stepper motors for linear action. This might be a good alternative to using the wiper motor or even pneumatics. I know my compressor can barely keep up and I hate having to run air lines everywhere...

    Halloween Props
    I'm still uncomfortable with the idea of pointing a green laser vortex at an audience, due to real or merely perceived safety issues. But searching around on YouTube I found what may be a cool and safer alternative - using a DJ style moonflower light plus fog. I'm interested in potentially...
