Fun Kitronik Halloween 2017 Project Ideas:We've tried to create a balanced mix of projects that cover a lot of the different facets of design and technology. We've got projects requiring coding, soldering, laser cutting, 3D printing, modifying garments, and creating add-ons for your fancy dress outfits. Hopefully, something for everyone. Each of the overviews below link to more detailed tutorials that contain step by step instructions and design file and code downloads.
- BBC micro:bit Powered Halo-ween Fancy Dress.
- microbit Powered Halo-ween Ironman Arc Reactor.
- :MOVE mini Halloween Ghost & Pumpkin Shells.
- :MOVE mini Servo Powered Halloween Add-ons.
- Last Years Project Ideas.
NOTE: These designs were produced for :MOVE mini MK1. Subsequent versions had slightly larger sizes and as such you will need to tweak the designs to fit the new version.James got back behind the wheel of Fusion 360 to create some fantastic Halloween themed shells that can be attached to a :MOVE mini that makes for a great mobile or lit up ornament. You could code it to drive up and down a windowsill autonomously or even code it for remote control and then chase people around the house with it! We love the :MOVE mini for the BBC microbit, there is so much you do with them via the magic of code. Sit down, write some code and it instantly becomes something else. But that fact that it lends itself to physical modding is especially exciting. If you would like to learn how to make your own, we have a resource that shows you how. For the last of this year's projects, we've got some great servo powered add-on ideas for :MOVE mini. We've designed 5 ghastly weapons which you can cut from Perspex sheets that will transform :MOVE mini into an evil Halloween killbot. They can be used for all sorts of competitive fun or you can code them to be the centrepiece of a Halloween display. All of the weapons are to be cut from the material of your choice using the files provided and we also show you how to fit them to the chassis and how to write the code for the extra servo. So if you have access to a laser cutter and a want a quick and easy project, this is the one for you. If you would like to learn how to make your own, we have a resource that shows you how. Last year we shared a number of great project ideas that you may have missed, so we've tagged them on the end here as you may wish to have go at making them this year. We had a laser cut and servo assisted bat, some flicker boxes, a 3D printed pumpkin, and a waving skeleton.
