Hauntbox, the personalised poltergeist controller
LIke the name. Hauntbox is described as an open source hardware prop controller, but it suggests a personalised pranking poltergeist controller!
It was an Arduino-based project featured on KickStarter, and its creators write:
The Hauntbox makes physical things happen based on inputs from sensors in the real world. Adding automation to your haunts and other projects is now incredibly simple.
The Hauntbox is a prop controller and automation machine that is browser-configured, open source and Arduino-compatible. It’s cool because you can automate inputs and outputs with no programming!
It supports up to 6 inputs and 6 outputs, which can be controlled via a browser configurable page – in the settings page you setup your inputs and outputs, name them, and set what voltage they run on and their minimum retrigger time…
What can you control with your Hauntbox?
- Halloween props
- any 120V AC device up to 15A via a PowerTail
- relays (allowing much higher power items such as pumps, wiper motors, etc)
- sound effects
- black lights
- air blasters
- linear actuators
