Home Made Pressure P...

A while back I mentioned that I’m not much of an electrician, and this tutorial pretty much puts the exclamation point on that thought. I’m pretty sure there should be more than just cardboard and aluminum foil needed to generate power of any kind, but that’s literally all...


 

Motion Detector Hack

If you’ve ever wanted a motion sensor to trigger your Halloween props but didn’t feel like laying out the cash for an overpriced store bought unit then pay close attention.  The reality is, they’re not that difficult to make if you’ve got a moderate amount of...


 

LED Lunacy

I’ve got a confession to make.  I’m clueless when it comes to basic electrical circuitry.  In fact, pretty much all of the concepts of electricity other than don’t stick your fingers in the outlets seem to be over my head (ok, well, don’t stick your fingers in the...


 

Simple Laser Vortex ...

I’ve always wanted to post a link to a tutorial on how to build a laser vortex but I’ve not been able to find one that wasn’t either too detailed to the point of confusion, or lacking in detail, which is equally confusing.  Luckily, UrDaddyO31 posted a short video...

Pico Volt Prop Contr...

As soon as I had finished my first motorized prop using a wiper motor I immediately started wondering how I could slow down the speed of my motor.  Sure, the motor had a low speed and a high speed setting, and I could control the direction of rotation depending on how it was wired up, but I...


 

Micca Speck

Every now and then you come across something that is too good to sit on and you’ve got to share it with as many people as possible.  That’s exactly how I feel about this cool piece of tech that Bigant from HalloweenForum posted about.  If you’re looking for an inexpensive...


 

Froggy’s Vorte...

  Fog machines operate by moving fog juice into a temperature controlled heat exchanger that vaporizes the fluid and produces the fog.  Since heat rises, the fog that is produced usually ends up hanging anywhere from the top of the fog machine to the top of the ceiling.  I’m...
