Spookiest Raspberry Pi Halloween projects – part two

Yesterday we looked at three spook-tastic Raspberry Pi Halloween projects. If you think those were scary, then get a pillow ready for our remaining four frightfests… The full article can be found in The MagPi 38 Scary Door (and Scary Porch) Don’t get too close to this door if you value your sanity Maker: Cabe Atwell – Electrical engineer, writer, crafter of cursed objects You are entering the vicinity of an area adjacent to a location. The kind of place where there might be a monster, or some kind of weird mirror. These are just examples; it could also be something much better. Prepare to enter… The Scary Door. Or not in this case, as this is not a real door. Or a Twilight Zone parody. While the Haunted House we started off this feature with shows the entrance to a spooky residence, this kind of project is what you might find inside as you wander around. It’s a peculiar metal door, with a window you can see through. A knocking sound is coming from behind it; perhaps someone is lost? As you get closer, you see through the window a normal-looking lounge. You can’t see anyone, but the knocking is still there and as you reach for the handle, a monstrous face appears. Who’s that at the door? Cabe’s idea was to create a modern haunted house effect on the cheap that was different every time you saw it. As well as the pop-up scares, there’s ghosts and monsters flying around in the ‘window’ (actually an LCD screen), and the scares and sounds you can create are as many as you can imagine. The knocking sound comes from pistons smashing against the door. As well as the door, Cabe has previously created a Scary Porch, which he describes as “[an] exploration of my idea of consuming someone with light and sound, to the point where they wanted to run away.” Unlike our Haunted House project from earlier, which was doorbell-activated, the porch could sense how far away you were from the door. As you started to approach, it would start playing creepy sounds and slowly turn on some bright red lights. As you got closer to the door, the louder the sounds became and the brighter the lights got, until screams and roars began playing when you were in knocking range. Significantly less scary with the lights on, nevertheless…
