I like to carve pumpkins for Halloween(ironman, deathstar), but there are so many amazing carvings, that this year I needed something different. I decided to make a 3 sided, 3 level, arduino controlled rotating pumpkin. I believe that gives me 27 different pumpkin faces in one. So that seemed different enough for this year.
Step 1: Materials
If you want to make one of these here are the materials I used
Materials Arduino Uno w/ external battery pack Prototype board 4 AA battery holder 3 potentiometer On/off switch Wire old printer cable with pins Wood dowel 1" 3/4" plywood PVC pipe 3 - PVC 3 way T's 2 - servos regular (converted to continuous rotation) 1 - servo low profile (also converted) 3 - Lego pully pieces Rubber bands Small screws velcro/tape Project box
