Don't laugh, it's going the waiting room of my doctor's office. We live out in the country and don't see any trick - o - treaters, so I decided to Haunt up the waiting room. Just hoping to get it done in time. My biggest stumbling block is getting code for arduino. I need to move 2 stepper motors wirelessly with Vixen 2.1 light sequencing program. Not getting much luck there. The physical part is getting close to being done, though.
Cost that I tell my wife.....or the real cost? Ha Ha Ha!!!
Let's see: Box skeletons sitting on = free from a co-worker. Pump organ = free off Craig's list. Servos about $10 a piece in bulk. Controllers = $15 each
steppers and gears = $20 each drawer slides for hands = $15 Skeletons = $70 for all 4 after Halloween sale Arduino Uno = $10
I pulled some of the electronics out of an old copy machine for free from Craig's list
So, total cost is probably in the $350-400 range. Mostly servo and controller cost.
Wish I could say it was done. More pictures soon, I hope!
