Are you like me and love to decorate for Halloween or just about ANY festivity? I love using automation for props, so I am going to show you three different ways to create a pneumatic Halloween prop that is sure to scare your friends… or any one you don’t want to keep around… LOL In these next three videos following, I will show you an easy pneumatic prop that will move. The first will be controlled remotely by a human. The second video will show how to automate the first prop and it will be controlled by a simple sensor and pneumatic solenoid valve – so no human needed. The third and last I will explain how to build a completely programmable automated system that you will be able to build on a budget and can tailor to your needs or application. Now.. these don’t HAVE to be used for Halloween props, but I thought that since a lot of people we have talked to enjoy creating projects like this… then why not? Besides, I still have a pretty cool prop from the movie “Aliens” that I had used years ago and would love to dig it out and re-build it. So, sit back, grab a pen and paper to take notes and follow me to the next three videos.
