Ian Lesnet submitted this cool hack-’o-lantern to our Make: Halloween Contest 2009. There’s an Instructable here, a Flickr set here, and YouTube video here. It’s a color-changing pumpkin full-court media press! The build uses a ShiftBrite RGB LED module, IR receiver, universal remote control, and a PIC18F2550 as the brains of it all.
