Happy Halloween to all the ghosts, ghouls, monsters et al. running around tonight in search of (or distributing) sugary snacks. I’ll be looking forward to all the awesome costumes floating around the internet in the next few days…not that I haven’t seen any sweet ones already.
Sadly, I haven’t made a costume for this year but I have rigged up a plastic jack-o-lantern that I bought last year. It’s amazing how much the price drops on these things when they’re “broken.” All I had to do was bust out the soldering iron and reattach the battery lead. Using an arduino, the Cap Sense Library, tin foil and some LEDs, I made a touch sensitive jack-o-lantern that I call the “Cyber Punkin.”
