The Rovin' Pumpkin' is a simple robotic pumpkin, and a close cousin of the Snap-O-Lantern. Silently, it sits on your porch-- camouflaged amongst the humble squashes.
After a minute, its green eyes start to glow, and it creeps... moving about one foot to the left... and stops. The eyes go dark again. It fades into the darkness. And it waits.
After several minutes and several steps, it reverses direction, and begins to creep the other way. Hopefully before it falls off of your porch.
The Rovin’ Pumpkin is made from Lego parts, a small motor, LEDs for eyes, and a pumpkin. Instructions and a video are included in the article. Link
