Halloween always provides superb inspiration for the DIY community. You can see some creative designs in our Top 30 Incredible DIY Halloween Props list. Another great addition to our collection is this Halloween Skeleton built around an Arduino.
The hinged skull is moved with the help of an Arduino controlled servo and a motion sensor. For the voice effects you need to assemble a sound shield that comes as a kit. You’ll also need to upload some eerie wav files and place red LEDs into the eye sockets. Finally, the speakers and the PVC frame that holds the skeleton straight are camouflaged by a black cloak.
Halloween is just around the corner and if you want to build a skeleton real quick, now is the time to get started. Thankfully, you have a timesaver in the instructions ready for you. Go get the supplies.
