I just had to share that husband has been working on a new 3-axis talking Bucky skull for our seminar at Hauntcon in May. He posted about it on his blog Space Robots.
It is a great improvement over the skull from last Halloween that had, well, let's say, some difficulties :)
It worked part/most of the time. Let's put it this way, if you got to there early, you got to see The Coachman in all it's perfectness.
But by 9:00 p.m. he was not giving it his all, turns out The Coachman was a bit of a diva and did not want to work as hard as the other props. :)Something about one of the controller cards not getting enough power?!
He assures me that this new skull will have no such problems.
I guess I have to say that nothing will motivate husband like knowing that he has to demonstrate how to build a prop in front of 75 or so haunted attraction owners :)
