Gameboy Halloween costume

The good people at Adafruit pointed us at this video. Besides the fact that the costume is driven by a Raspberry Pi, we don’t know much about the build (or the guy who made it – he goes by MikeHandidate on YouTube, but we suspect that’s not actually his name) – good though, isn’t it? More Halloween goodies... Continue reading

Raspberry-flavoured haunted house

Remember Amelia and Oliver? Earlier this year, aged seven and five, they programmed, soldered, modeled and painted a simply fantastic school project that we featured here. (We liked the Bee Box so much that we’re including something very similar in the primary school materials we’re working on at the moment.) This Halloween, with some help... Continue reading

DIY Haunted Mansion portrait

Welcome, foolish mortals. I’m with Cory Doctorow on this one: the Haunted Mansion is the best thing at the Disney parks. It’s a close-run fight with the Tower of Terror, but for me, the Haunted Mansion comes out on top every time. (So much so that I own a gargoyle candlestick.) The queue is one... Continue reading

Creeptacular face-tracking Halloween portrait

You’ve got a week to build this portrait, whose eyes follow you around the room, for Halloween. Adafruit have produced a tutorial, courtesy of Tony DiCola, which uses OpenCV and openFrameworks with your Raspberry Pi and camera board to create a picture of pullulating panic. It’s haunted hardware of horripilating hideousness. You’ll also find instructions... Continue reading

Yorick, the talking skull

I had an email on Monday morning from someone whose job title is “Witch Doctor/Marketing Specialist” from wedü, a US marketing agency. He introduced a talking skull called Yorick in the first line. It perked me up like no amount of Monday morning coffee was ever going to – thanks Marc! Marc says: “Exhuming Yorick took... Continue reading

Ratsberry Pi – scampering Halloween rats

A quicky today – I’ve been running from meeting to meeting all day and have only just managed to get some time at my desk now, at half past four in the afternoon. Great meetings, though, and I discovered that Ben “Pi Weekly” Nuttall not only rescues the drowning in his kayak, but also does... Continue reading

The trick or treat greeter

Do you have any Halloween projects you’d like to share? Get them to us before the end of the month by mailing me at liz@raspberrypi.org, and we might feature them here. The village I live in is small enough that all the families with kids know each other, so a few parents take charge of... Continue reading

Halloween costumes: Doc Brown

Halloween’s a little way off yet, but here in the USA, preparations are in full swing. (Can someone explain to me what earthly use a Pumpkin Spice Latte is in New Orleans, with temperatures above 30ºC and 100% humidity?) Halloween cards are in the shops, vampire teeth are on sale on every street corner. We... Continue reading

Pumpkin Pi

We’re on the hunt for guest posts for a couple of weeks in November. See this post for more details on how to contribute. There seem to be a lot of Raspberry Pi + pumpkin projects around at the moment. Can’t think why. There’s non-pumpkin spooky activity out there too. I love this: it’s a... Continue reading
