Prop of the day

This amazing spider prop was built by Tracy Murphy of "Village Haunt". Using windshield wiper motors as well as pneumatics, it has the ability to chase after trick-or-treaters and spit "venom" at them. Click here for a terrific video detailing the spider's creation. (My favorite part was learning that the spider's legs were covered in eight fuzzy scarves that Tracy's wife knitted.)

More detailed instructions on building this prop can be found here.
