With Halloween approaching I wanted to put together a fun project for tricker-treaters and since we’ve been re-watching Futurama, making an interactive Hypnotoad seemed perfect. It also seemed like a great combo of general scary/weird but with an easter-egg aspect for fans of Futurama. A quick search on Thingiverse led me to Jason Sly’s ‘Realistic Hypnotoad’ (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2993116) and I was on my way. I ultimately ended up with a remote motion-sensor that triggers a 3D printed Hypnotoad with Neopixels in the eyes as well as plays his signature (noise/sound/music?).

The STL files for the actual Hypnotoad were larger than Thingiverse allows, so I uploaded them as Meshmixer files. I also included all source files as well.
