Singing Pumpkins using servos

8517 35
Ok, someone gave me this idea last year and you know how ideas can sit and fester. Well after last Halloween, I decided to make some singing pumpkins to entertain the TOTs.

The parts list is so far:

-4 425BB Hitec servos
-1 Linxmotion controller
-4 single-channel LED boards (made by azdude) for the eyes
-4 Foam Pumpkins
-4 servo extensions
-4 Lucite plates (this will hold the pumpkin and the servo)
-4 servo brackets (made by 5artist5)

I've included pictures of the foam pumpkins before and after I cut out the mouth parts as well as a picture of the single-channel LED boards (I turned the boards over as the design for those belongs to azdude so if you want it you will need to contact him).

I still need to cut out the Lucite plates to hold the pumpkins and take pictures of those.

More to come.

nice...nice, do you have a program to run in mind? I have always thought that I should do a pirate like theme and for a little comic relief I would put a 3 axis quartet (or...say...pumpkins like yours) singing something totally out of place...like a little "three little birds" or something. What do you have in mind?

those are pretty friggin awesome!!! I love what you have done with these...what is the grand $$ total on the project, just out of curiosity. I think that we should start including that little bit of information to help other haunters determine the feasibility of making these sort of props.

Awesome work again!!!
