Open source Halloween LED projects

Posted on Saturday, October 5th, 2013 in Holiday, LEDs, open source by the machinegeek


Eric Thompson of Lowvoltagelabs. sends in these two Open Source Hardware projects for Halloween:

I thought October might be a good time to share a couple Halloween related circuit boards that I have designed. Both of them were designed using KiCAD and I have released them as open source hardware so people can make their own versions.

The first one is a pumpkin shaped PCB with a 10mm flickering LED. It can be used to light up your pumpkin instead of a candle.

The second one is new for this year, it’s a ghost shaped PCB with flashing green LEDs for eyes. Makes a great necklace for Halloween night.

  • William: lol I'm happy to waste 3c for each program/debug cycle... but probably not the time spent soldering a new device down to a proto board!...
  • Joe Desbonnet: Ya, I can recommend the low melting point solder. I used brand 'ChipQuik' and it's amazingly easy to use.
