Halloween, Trick-or-Treating, and Ghost Buster Proton Pack!

SO..this month is Halloween and along with that comes Trick-or-Treating! This year my son wants to be a Ghost Buster and I just HAVE to make a super cool proton pack for him to wear. Both he and I are going as Ghost Busters and my wife is going as Janine. For the packs, I built some micro-controllers and wrote a program to control the light system. I ordered some simple MP3 player boards that will play the pack sound effects from the video game and the movie. I programmed mine to play snippets from Ghost Busters 1 also. Mainly the line, “There is no Dana, only ZUUL!!” As you can see, I’m having a TON of fun with this build. I think I will dedicate the rest of this month’s blog posts to the Proton Pack build. That way I can document my progress and dedicate a section of the blog to tutorials or something. Sound good?

Here is the light controller.

Next on the list is the sound controller. Stay tuned there is a lot more to come!

Here are some sites that I found to help aid in the build process.
