    Halloween Props
    Hi, Here's my take in the AtmosFX unliving portrait. Controlled by a Raspberry Pi Zero, PIR activated. The project would be a lot simpler if the monitor had hdmi and USB, but it was a old monitor by father was going to throw away and I thought I know what I can use that for.
