When the Kinect for Windows came out I had an idea for Halloween, and so I used a Kinect plus the SDK version of Virtual Earth 3D to make an eyeball that would follow your movements and make scary sounds if you got close.

This first version was on a computer monitor that I put in a window next to the front door.  Over the years I switched to Unity and added a bunch of different texture variants, 3D models, particle effects and the like.  The current version is projected on a sheet covering my garage.  Kids really seem to like the jump scares.

The delay in the jump scare scream is because of a setting I was using for a bluetooth speaker.  It seems every year there's some sort of little hurdle.  I fixed it in time for the kids to see it though!
