Been working on a set of bats that have their eyes controlled by a prop-1 controller. There are currently 4 bats, we could 4 more bats if we want. I am using the hanging 14 inch bats you see all over at halloween this time of year I have repainted them slightly to make them look better, I cut out their eyes, and replaced them with red LED's then ran hookup wire thru the inside of their bodies and out a small incision near their foot, the eyes were installed by making a 2 inch cut near its neck. The LED's are pulled thru the eyes and then a dab of hot glue is put on the back of the LED and pushed back into the socket, I then paint the edge of the eye where I cut it. The prop-1 will be installed inside of bat #1 and the whole thing can run off a 9volt battery for 7 hours (the prop-1 and all 4 bats). All the other bats will have their wires terminate in bat #1.
The program on the prop-1 chooses a random bat and also randomizes the on times and the off times of the LED eye sets.

Here is a video, a bunch of you have already seen this in chat.

Nick - that was my exact thought when I saw the cage...

Thats' a great cage for a devil bat... or a devil mutant baby... or a devil 4 as*ed monkey...

opps... slipped a South Park reference in there.

Anyway - if I weren't a guy, and married with kids, I'd marry you too Krough. Great freakin work my man.
