Earl Boysen was kind enough to arrange for our MAKE blog readers to get this special Halloween how-to “called Scary Pumpkins” from the book he co-authored Electronics Projects For Dummies – The Scary Pumpkins sense visitors when they walk between them using an infrared beam. The pumpkins then greet the vistors with a spooky message you record on a voice chip integrated circuit. Here are the electronics bits stuffed inside one of the pumpkins. Link.
