Remote control pumpkin


MAKE subscriber Ian writes in to share his Halloween project, a remote-control, color changing pumpking. To control the pumpkin, he built an infrared remote decoder, which allows him to use a regular TV remote to change the color of the pumpkin. The project also has an ‘angry pumpkin’ mode, which flashes a red color to scare away onlookers. Full source code, schematic and writeup are available on his website.
