A Halloween Resource & Project page by Vern Graner
Welcome Nuts and Volts Readers! :) I want to thank Jon Williams (of Parallax fame) for the nice mention in the December issue. For those of you who might be interested in finding neat ways to use the Rogue Robotics uMp3 player, try this link to take you directly to my uMP3 haunt sound controller demo project. My other Basic Stamp projects, photos of my haunt (spiders preyground) and the activities surrounding it, are all in the list below--VLG
Welcome to the Spiders Preyground Project page! This page will be updated as I add new how-to's and behind the scenes descriptions of my haunted, scary projects. There are "how-to's" and plenty of photographs on creating haunted props, microcontroller based haunt controllers (mostly using the Parallax Basic Stamp series of microprocessors) and various other projects that deal with the Haunted Attraction industry. Though I have not (as of yet) created a commercial haunted attraction, I hope to do so in 2006. In fact, we are actively seeking a partner to sponsor (and benefit from) the Spiders Preyground 2006. If you have a charity organization (or know of one) in Austin, Texas that would like to put on a Haunted Fundraiser, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, please feel free to browse the projects and let me know if you have any questions. I would like to thank ParallaxEFX and Rogue Robotics for making fine products that are fun to use. Thanks guys! :).
