Al Linke, the creator of the DIY Magic Mirror, has just buzzed me on his cool Magic Mirror, which was featured on Instructables as winner of the Halloween contest.

Well, I don’t know how I missed it if it was on Instructables but here it is and Al is actually selling kits you can buy to make a magic mirror yourself.

Food Hack – How to Make Chocolate Pasta!

Chocolate pasta still might be great for some of you out there who love chocolate and other sweets.  Here’s how to make it yourself and knock yourself out.

I know I know. Chocolate pasta. Those 2 words really shouldn’t go together. But, I wanted to share the chocolately love. A great way to impress (or perhaps gross out?) your dinner guests, or a halloween or easter treat. I haven’t put a a toppin

Bluetooth Hack – How to Make a Steampunk Bluetooth Headset!

I have never been a fan of bluetooth headsets (yet) due to the undiscovered side effects (that most consumers don’t know about) but if you must, I highly suggest reading up on how to make a Steampunk bluetooth headset.

Last halloween I dressed up in an old fashioned manor with my cell phone in a pocket keychain. The chain was too short for the phone to reach my ear. This left me with the option of un-hook the phone every time I had to use it, make a unreasonable long c

DIY Halloween LED Music Player!


Here’s a really cool lookin’ LED Music Player for this Halloween you can set by the front door window and entertain your trick-or-treaters.

Basically, I wanted to build some kind of LED matrix driven by an Arduino and laptop for some kind of Halloween costume this year. I ended up using Disney’s Electrical Parade song as the inspiration for my costume. As you can see from the video, the matrix cycles through random animations but when I press a button on my wireless keypad, it starts to play the Electrical Parade so

Halloween DIY – How to Make Poor Man’s Octopus Costume!

If you are a gadgeteer, plumber, or some kind of hard-core DIYer, you might want to consider this poor man’s version of Doctor Octopus costume for this Halloween.

Simply get some of those left over hardware parts and put them together for nice octopus tentacle effect that’s going to annoy and entertain anyone around you at the Halloween party.

Halloween Hack – How to Make a Singing Skull!


Well, it’s coming real close to Halloween (and yes, I’ve already booked myself at a Halloween rave), here’s another really cool Singing Skull you can possibly make. (if you still have enough time)

What’s it saying? It sounds kind of like “I’m on sale” to me. I guess they just want you to subconsciously decode the message and buy more skulls.

Halloween DIY – How to Make an LED Pumpkin with Arduino!


Yey, here’s another cool LED Pumpkin you can make, sorta different from the one I made couple years ago but this one, you can use Arduino to make it.

The Arduino is programmed to pulse the eye LEDs until the victim, I mean trick-or-treater, presses the big red button. At that point the bright white LED will glow, there will be a slight delay, and the servo will trigger a blast from
