9 Inventions Provide Frightful Fun for Halloween

Halloween isn't just a time for creative costumes. Thanks to the element14 online design community, the holiday this year also brings us a number of creative electronic device design ideas aimed at making your Halloween party a unique experience.

The community sponsored a Halloween Pi Project and asked engineers to come up with Halloween-themed devices based on the Raspberry Pi computer platform. Element14 shared the results with Design News.

The designs are varied but are generally party-oriented, giving people different ways to provide music, entertainment, decoration, tongue-in-cheek frights, or even serve drinks at their Halloween parties.

Click on the photo below to see a slideshow of some of the entries of the contest. An element14 Web page also features videos showing how each invention works.
