ATmega328 powers this geeky jack-o’-lantern

There is just something magical about a flame or electric candle flickering inside a pumpkin on All Hallows’ Eve. While it may be common to see jack-o’-lanterns on nearly every doorstep, it is a bit less common to come across one as geeky as this. That’s because Maker Michal Janyst has employed a pair of 8×8 LED modules and an Arduino Nano (ATmega328) to give his pumpkin a pair of animated eyes.

Now that’s what we call a hack-o’-lantern! In the ‘ween spirit? Check out some of our favorite Atmel powered projects!
