Have done some "small" things the last days
Mini LED spot
(Idea after watched Allen H making them in his youtube channel)
Some components did find the way in the mail
LED are 35.000 mcd ultrabright cold white
Resistors are 330 Ohm 1/2 W
Have 100 of each
Time to start putting them together
Have put some of them together and added cables from some "murdered" computer PSU.
I have used this size of cables to make sure the spot can handle to be mounted a lot of times without the cable break off
have to mount all the finished spots to on power supply just to see how much light they can produce
Closeup look on one of the finished spots
This is how the LED is inside the tubing.
Some of the Computer PSU`s that actually did work have been modified to serve us as a 12V power supply, This one is tweaked to produce 12.8V instead of 12.2 to give us a little more voltage drop over the LED since the resistor is a little to "big"
Hope you guys like what you see
Here is some pictures of the early former mentioned Computer PSU`s
I`d asked my friend that is working for a store that repair computers if they had a couple of PSU`s laying around that we cold use the cables from.
Yes they a had "some" (the floor is filled up)
And then the "murdering" started, We tested all of them to see if someone worked so we could mod them to be 12V power supply`s
The PSU`s that did not work we cut all of the cables off and collected them to use with other projects
I also have to mention that we received a mascot from frightprops.com today. He does not talk so much, but it is nice to have company in the workshop
Over 500 Pallets are now stacked and 2000+ screws are used.
and our back`s hurt a bit of all the stacking :)
I will take some "birdview" pictures tomorrow.
I would really appreciate if someone could move this thread to another Forum where it belongs.
Like i promised here are some fotos of this years build.
We are starting the extra build we are making this year.
Here are some bird view pictures when we are finished with the pallet stacking.
The brain of MortemMania 2013 is now finished and ready for some people to trigger it.
Yes we are using a BooBox Flex Max as a central units for 99% of our props since there are no props running from this BooBox that can not be interupted. The effect that we have that can not be interupted is a movie in the entrance combined wit a door opening mech, this part have a dedicated BooBox and a video player.
8 PIR sensors connected via Arduino
8 units Relay card to trigger BooBoox Flex Max inputs
BooBox Flex Max (8 inputs/16 Outputs)
16 units Relay card triggered by Boobox
Hope someone like this setup, and understand why we have done it this way ;)
And now to the fun part.
Today MortemMania was open in a mild variant for the youngest kids.
With a little more scary tour for the oldest if they dared later on the evening.
We did scare a lot of people today and we are looking forward to tomorrows 13+ opening. :)
Since we are the "only" haunt in Norway we also was on the national television channel :)
Video will hopefully come.
Over 200 "walkers" inside MortemMania today and over 95% got scared!
This years haunt crew inside MortemMania!
