I created a “trick or treat” project where people can come to get candy to and be “treated” by the evil halloween lord “Kakoon.” As a person reaches out for candy, “Kakoon” senses his/her presence and erupts in a melancholic tone and lights up his fiery eyes to drive away intruders.
I used a ping sensor, neopixel and speaker to achieve this effect. I had no trouble this time around with code or circuit and everything seemed to work in the first go. I also feel with more and more projects, I feel more comfortable with the creativity and art side of physical computing. A lot of the makeup for Kakoon was pretty spontaneous.
