Happy Halloween

Published: 27 October 2015

Here at CBHQ we'd like to wish everyone a spootacular Halloween, and to help make it extra spooky for all you Petduino owners out there, we've put together a small code example and a laser cutter template file to help transform your Petduino into it's Halloween alter-ego, Pumpkinduino!

To complete the transformation, download this zip file and extract it's contents to an easily accessible location. Using the design template supplied, cut out a the new pumpkin face plate on a laser cutter (or you could try cutting it out of card if you don't have access to a laser cutter) and swap it for your Petduino's current one. Lastly, upload the Arduino sketch via the Arduino IDE to give your Petduino it's scary personality.

Once done, plug in your Pumpkinduino and prepare to be afraid! Don't say we didn't warn you!

If you do create a Pumpkinduino, don't forget to share it with us on twitter, instagram or facebook using the #petduino hashtag. And, if you don't have a Petduino, and you'd like to join in the fun, why not adopt one of your very own today? :)
