Ya Want Pumpkins? We Got Pumpkins!

Halloween Countdown Day 5

Yeah, it ain't Halloween without Jack-o'-Lanterns, but while settle for the dull and boring when you could have something weird and wonderful?

Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories really love(s) Halloween, detailing all sorts of DIY projects like the Cylon Jack-O-Lantern (see above), the too-adorable-for-words Robotic Snap-O-Lantern, and my particular fave, the Robotic Dalek Pumpkin:

Sure, you'll need a bit of eye/hand coordination, some mechanical/electronic skills, and the ability to wield a soldering iron without causing third-degree burns, but look at 'em! They're worth the risk!

And speaking of pumpkin carving, last year Wired ran a post asking readers to Show Us Your Geeky Jack-o'-Lanterns. The results were both impressive and inspirational.
