Controlling Halloween props with an ATmega328

Devising electronics with an Arduino is fun, but using one to scare the heck out of trick-or-treaters is just downright awesome. Published on MAKE Magazine, Jason Poel Smith has shared a video tutorial on how to create choreographed Halloween props using an ATmega328 based Uno.

“Animated Halloween props are a lot of fun, but the props that you buy at the store have some major limitations.”

With the Arduino, a Maker can now control when and how each prop will turn on and off.
