2022 Halloween IOT Props & Recap

This year I made 2 different Halloween IOT props. I used the same or similar techniques from the previous years... Actobotics for building out the structures and support, for the IOT controller and software side, and pneumatic powered "mechs" from for the movement. The new addition this year was adding in a FrightProps "Picoboo" controller to the setup, which brought on great possibilities. Adding this allowed me to add in audio and instantly cut power on and off to multiple outlets. So I turned lights on and off, fans on and off and strobed some strobe lights. 

If you're interested in previous years implementations check them out below:

As I bult the devices I posted some behind the scenes FB posts and a tweet..

Then when Halloween came we were fortunate to have the rain stop and I got some good reactions on the reactions video.
