If you can't tell, that's what's in my profile picture. Lightning.

I like the doorbell-activated soundtrack. I've always wanted my doorbell to play the theme music from the movie, Halloween.

I always liked the pumpkin cutter, too, Beth. It's way over the top, and the picture of Rick is plenty scary. And who would have thought of creating a pumpkin cutter with water and CDs?

I love stuff like this-- maybe before next year I'll learn enough about pneumatics and latex molding to build my own animatronic creature.  Just think, they pay Disney Imagineers to do this all day!

Buddy of mine used a fake coffin with a drill inside to create some racket and freak out the little kids.  Cool idea.  Love to see some cool tech to cause some scares.

Kids are definitely not suspecting a rigged doorbell. Pretty cool use of electronics.

I would love to have a seat watching the reaction of unsuspecting trick or treaters - especially on a foggy Halloween night. The strobe light was a great addition and the bat flying out the door made me jump just watching the video!

I personally have to go for the pumpkin cutter gadget. Could be a bit overkill in terms of finessing any good design, but definitely is in keeping with the spooky Halloween spirit.
