    Our drop panels are some of our best scares, but I'm always looking to change them up. Last year we did a white board at the end with a tally asking if we scared them, which dropped down as they went to write on it. Anyone have any new ideas? The pictures are getting a little stale.

    Not sure where this goes. It's tech-related inspiration. This isn't a commercial. I did a vid because I've been enjoying doing vids on all my channels with the MacBook Pro Retina and headset instead of just a link :) You could buy this tech anywhere. Most of it doesn't mention a manufacturer...
