Grandpa Scarer

In this project we are going to use a Raspberry Pi to play spooky noises, whilst releasing a scary spider from a box onto whoever is underneath, at the press of a button!

Requirements

As well as a Raspberry Pi with an SD card loaded with Raspbian, you'll also need:

Hardware

Optional

  • 1 x USB battery pack
  • 1 x Wifi adaptor

Software

All the software packages that we are going to use are installed in Raspbian by default. Make sure to update your SD card in order to stay current. You can do this with the command: sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade.

Extras

  • 1 x toy spider
  • 1 x metre of elastic string to attach your spider to your box
  • A way to attach the box to the ceiling
  • An unsuspecting grandpa

Worksheet & included files

  • The worksheet
  • (Optional) Final version of Python code grandpa_scarer.py
    • Download to your Pi with wget http://goo.gl/lUuohk -O grandpa_scarer.py --no-check-certificate

Final version

What it looks like when it's finished:

Box

Disclaimer

  1. Do not scare people with medical conditions that could be easily triggered.
  2. Make sure that the box is safely and firmly attached to the ceiling. Do not take risks with this as the final product is quite heavy and could be dangerous if it falls on someone. We recommend an adult takes over for this part ;-)
  3. Take care when using the machinery described. Always have a qualified adult supervising when using appliances such as laser cutters.
