Have an Evil Robotic Halloween

Posted 29 Oct 2006 at 04:04 UTC by steve Share This

Just in time for halloween, The Swirling Brain sent us some links to the Robotic Dalek Pumkin and the Cylon Jack-O-Latern. The Cylon is based on the shiny, bouncy-eyed robots of the late 70's rather than the more sinister human-like Cylon's of today. Both of these evil robotic projects were created by the folks at Evil Mad Scientist Labs. The Mad Scientists didn't stop with robots, either. They've also created a Flying Spaghetti Monster costume, perfect for trick-or-treaters who live near ex-members of the Kansas School Board. They can also show you how to install LEDs in the heads of Lego minifigures, turning them into scary, or at least illuminated, halloween decorations.

I made a RoboPumpkin for Halloween this year. I entered it in a contest but it got stuck way off in a corner because it needed wall power. I'm sure it won't even get one vote. Oh well, I had fun making it at least.

That's pretty good. Maybe better than the one from the Evil Mad Scientists lab. You know, I was just thinking... part living pumpkin, part machine. These are cyborg pumpkins!

Surprised to see halloween is supported so much still in the usa,here in the uk it is now just seen as 1 night of the year set aside for all the police forces work,a night of legalised begging at doors many times with threats,this is the first real noticeable year decorations in bars etc. has disappeared and on the news it is shown for no good,sorry to put a negative on the night but just being honest.

I'm beside myself! I won the most creative award! I got a pumpkin pie, a $10 gift certificate, a $7.50 lunch certificate, and a $6 breakfast certificate. They said I would get lunch free all week, but that didn't seem to materialize, but hey, I won a bunch of stuff so can't really complain too much! I really didn't think I'd win with being put out in the corner. I got the most creative award! very cool! I'm happy!

BAN HALLOWEEN AND BONFIRE NIGHT,2006., posted 1 Nov 2006 at 23:24 UTC by marev » (Observer)

I agree with the other robots.net member "goodrobot",i am from the uk also and i see the logical moves to ban the scav children begging at publics doors for "sweeties or cash" and also in the uk the november the 4th explosives parties,called fireworks,ban them all,they are old git traditions and should be banned.
