Todbot is at it again. Here’s a creepy, simple, and effective Halloween effect — a pair of glowing eyeballs that look back and forth at your victims. It’s made with two ping pong balls, two BlinkM programmable LEDs, three servomotors, and an Arduino microcontroller. Stick ti in a pumpkin, or better yet, incorporate it into your costume, and you’ve got maximum spookiness.

Head to the todbot blog for more info, and to download the Arduino sketch.
