This is pretty much the best Halloween music gag ever – the MIDI-Controlled animated skull.
If you get one of these, make a video and leave a link below!
This MIDI-controlled animated skull has eyes that light up and a mouth that moves. Connect it to a computer to create your own custom animations. Use it by itself or as part of a larger prop.
Send note-on/note-off events to the skull to make the mouth open/close and the eyes turn on/off.
- Note 60 (C4): Mouth
- Note 61 (C#4): Eyes
- Custom MIDI Cable
- 3 AA Batteries (installed)
Division 6 also sells a kit to MIDIfy Your Skull or other props with motors & LEDs. (Talking Bass, anyone?)
Make ran an article on hacking the skull last year, too.
