1 thought on “Halloween Projects from Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories”
I love Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories, but most of the time I read it and think, “Wow… that’s so cool, but… huh-wha?” because when it comes to circuits and such things I am most definitely unschooled.
HOWEVER, this Halloween I got it into my head to do some sort of functioning robot pumpkin for my company’s pumpkin carving competition, which led me to the absolutely fantastic Dalek pumpkin. Since I am functionally retarded where circuits, servos, etc. are concerned, I ended up cheating somewhat – repurposing the chassis of an RC jeep to make the thing move, or installing an IR remote controlled Lego motor to turn the head, for example – but the result was good enough to take first place.
In my mind I envisioned a Victorian steampunk-style robot, but we only had an hour to complete our masterpieces, so the end result wasn’t 100% the vision in my brain – like the cardboard base sprayed with stone-textured spray paint did not look very stone-like – but hey. It was fun.
Here it is in action:
