  1. Dark Ride Car Arduino (possibly hoverboard motor)

    General Halloween
    Hey! I am new to the Halloween forum, but I am definitely not new to Halloween. This is my 7th year building a haunted house type attraction. I am needing to find a way to build 2 dark ride cars for a 100' dark ride I am building. I currently have a brushless hoverboard motor that is 8" and...

  3. Other: Flying Crank Ghost

    Halloween Props
    Hey all. I'm thinking of building a flying crank ghost, and potentially a cauldron creep. I need help finding battery powered LED lights for the ghost eyes. What would I search for on eBay or other website to narrow the search, or does anyone have another source. A simple eBay search brings up...
  4. Mechanical: Wiper Motor Question

    Halloween Props
    A wiper motor is normally powered by a car battery, right? If you want to use it with a prop, does that mean you have to connect it to a battery? Can it run on household current? Thanks.
  5. Battery operated motion sensor

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I want to find a battery operated motion sensor that will detect motion about 10-12' away, and display different LED colors depending on motion or no motion. I'd like to be able to control the update period, being able to vary its detection between a few times per minute to once every 1...
  6. pico projector experience?

    General Halloween
    I feel like there's a thread on here every few weeks asking for projector recommendations, yet here I am again... I've decided I should try using a projector to decorate, but I don't want it to be so obvious I'm using a projector. So I thought maybe I could hide one inside the shell of a...

    Off-Topic Stuff
    I'm soldering longer leads to a gum stick, 40mm x 12mm x 4mm, lithium polymer, 3.7v battery, and I recently discovered that the leads coming out of the battery are aluminum, so in order to solder them, I need to be using a flux designed for aluminum. Okay, no problem so far. Online, I'm...
  9. Static: Lighting stained glass windows?

    Halloween Props
    I made these 4 windows a couple of years ago and plan to use them again this year in our community haunted house. They will be hanging against a dark wall and I am trying to figure out a way to make them appear like there is light coming from inside the window. Everything I've tried isn't...
  10. Light up suit ideas?

    Halloween Costume Ideas
    So I was just realizing that it's almost Halloween and I don't have a costume even thought up yet. I'm thinking I want to do something like a black bodysuit with led strip lights all over. But, having trouble finding things for it. I'm thinking I could do a rgb strip light like this...
  11. Lighting: Where to get pin light?

    Halloween Props
    I'm wondering what folks use for a small pin light (very low lumens). I could buy a cheap battery powered LED pen light, but would love to find something that could be activated with remote and would consider plug in.
  12. Electronic/Software: Computer power supply not powering wiper motor

    Halloween Props
    The setup worked a couple years ago. I tested the motor with a car battery and it works. I also put the meter on the outputs of the computer power supply and I get 5 volts on the red and 12 on the yellow. When I connect the motor to the power supply the motor doesn't turn at all, I measured with...
  13. Mechanical: Convert battery prop that is sound activated to a timer

    Halloween Props
    Hi all I recently bought two props that I didn't realize were only sound activated. They turn on when I turn on the power so I am wondering if anyone has played with converting something like this to a timer activation. I've been searching but can't find anything that I can splice inline to do...
  14. Prop Showcase: Monster in a box

    Halloween Props
    Here is my take on the monster in a box. The box use to be a bedroom 3 draw chest. Completely self contained. Controlled by a Four banger setup, powered by a 12v battery and a 9v for the Uno R3. Actuator is surprisingly powerful for it's size and price (£1.85)...

  18. Lighting: NEED Help LED Mini Spots

    Halloween Props
    I have always used these little LED mini spotlights with swivel clips (like finger lights) for my accent lighting for both graveyard and haunt. I use to buy them at Jackstoolshed, but it seems they do not carry them anymore. These were great as they were battery powered so I didn't have to...

    Halloween Props

    Hello everyone. I'm new to the forum and I've come here seeking assistance in repairing a Gemmy Halloween prop I have. Its series name is "Grave Ravers" I'm sure you've all heard of it before somewhere. They're these small animated skeletons that dance and sing when the button on their base is...
