Cylon Pumpkin made for Halloween, 2012. A full write-up can be found on my blog: http://shawnhymel.com/portfolio/cylon...

Stuck inside thanks to Hurricane Sandy, we decided to carve a Cylon Centurion out of a pumpkin and add a few extra features. An ultrasonic sensor detects when someone is about 10 feet away from the pumpkin and then activates the lights and sound of the iconic villainous robots.
