Local Dad Creates Hi-Tech Halloween Show [VIDEO]
There is a high-tech Halloween show that has become a hot ticket just down the road from us in Warren. It's in a basement.
Steve Charles created the free show in the basement of his Warren home four years ago. Steve basically has shows for family and friends. The skeletons do all of the talking and singing. Steve takes plain plastic skeletons from the store, and writes the software for all of their movements.
Right now, he has three skeletons and a set of pumpkins who sing. One skeleton narrates the show, a second plays the piano, and a third female skeleton that he just made this year sings.The whole thing actually started out as a project for Steven’s 12-year-old son when he was 8 years old.
Steve used technology he learned from his engineering program at Lawrence Technological University, but he also made a few improvements. Next year, he hopes to make the show even bigger by moving it to the garage. He hopes that will also mean more people can enjoy the Halloween fun.
