Perfect for Halloween: Roving pumpkin

Spook all your trick-or-treaters and keep all the candy for yourself!

From GeekDad:

GeekDad perennials Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories have been thinking up neato Halloween projects forever.

Who could foret the Jack-o-Dalek, light-up Lego headless horseman or Punkin’ Cylon? Well, Lenore and Windell are at it again. This time they’ve dreamed up a simple part-Lego robot that fits inside a pumpkin. The Rovin’ Pumpkin is a simple robotic pumpkin. After a minute, its green eyes start to glow, and it creeps… moving about one foot to the left… and stops.
