In this episode, we're going to quickly build another one of Mike North's $20 Arduino based prop controller, program it with our own sounds and events, and chain two of them together! With these devices, we can control animated props, pneumatics, lights, etc. all while not connected to a computer. And, they even have an ambient sound track and an event soundtrack. The best part, it's easy! Follow along, and you can make them yourself! And, of course, more bloopers at the end. ;)
NOTE: If you have the Arduino knock off board, which matches the one in the illustration, and are comfortable with soldering, you do not need to cut and splice the power and ground wires. Just solder the included pins onto the arduino and wire power and grounds as Mike has illustrated in the diagram.
If you have issues or questions, I strongly recommend that you join HauntForum.com, and join this thread. We've done a lot of testing and figuring out how to resolve various issues there, and you can get help pretty quickly as well:
