littleBits Projects: Halloween Take Two

This is part of an on-going series of posts about littleBits projects. littleBits is available in the Adafruit store – Starter KitExtended Kit and Teaser kit.

Here at littleBits, we are Halloween fanatics! In addition to last week’s projects, we decided to make a couple more. Get inspired to make something that creeps and crawls this Halloween.

This Lego cockroach behaves similarly to real cockroach, making it a great Halloween prop. It is able to navigate tricky spaces and it scurries when it is exposed to light. When it finds a dark place to hide, it lays low and stays put. See how this clever circuit combines bend sensors, inverters, and light triggers to create this lifelike interaction.

In honor of the littleBits Halloween Costume Contest, we whipped up our own Halloween costume. This glowing dinosaur can be made with the light wire and an old hoodie. Learn to use the light wire as a structural element and light up your night this Halloween. See project details here.
