Weekend Projects Podcast: Make A Programmable LED Pumpkin


It struck me like a bolt of lightning when I was reading the new CRAFT magazine: I could make a programmable LED pumpkin!

Watch the video to learn how to do it and get inspired to get some LEDs blinking in your pumpkin! I still have a lot to learn about how to program it, but it works. Now I’m going to have to make some sort of pumpkin protection device to keep it from getting smashed!

Make sure to go check out the instructional post and download the PDF to read the original article and learn about the changes I made to the project to make it work in a pumpkin.

I record the podcast in HD and output a lot of formats so that you can have your weekend projects on whatever platform you like.
