Description

Want to create the perfect set for a unforgettable Halloween party? Or add some uncanny atmosphere to a kid’s room?

This fun interior decoration project describes how to create a Smoking Crystal Skull: a upsetting cloud of fog coming out of a terrifying translucent skull with breathing illumination.

The project requires some level of experience in electronics, programing and basic crafting with carton and cables. The cost is relatively cheap, well under $80, with standard components that can be sourced easily (see below). It took me a couple of evenings to create this Smoking Crystal Skull.

The brain that controls the Smoking Crystal Skull is a small ESP8266 processor module, similar to Arduino with Wifi capabilities. The internal fog is created by an ultrasonic mist maker covered with water. A fan ensures a dynamic air flow, on top of the pulsing illumination, coming from a waterproof led strip. All of that is enclosed in a translucent glass skull.

The Smoking Crystal Skull may also be used as a perfume diffuser, but make sure to include some pumpkin fragrances...

The overall project remains relatively cheap, using standard components, as listed here:

  • 1x Clear Glass Skull Shaped Water Dispenser (link or link) - The Crystal Skull
  • 1x carton box to hide the electronics (link) - The Brain Control Box
  • 1x ESP8266 generic SoC (link) - The Brain
  • 1x Ultrasonic mist maker 24V with 230V plug (link) - The Fog maker
  • 1x Small Fan TZL9110 (link) - The Fan for dynamic air flow
  • 1x Waterproof LED Strip (link) - The LED strip for illumination
  • 1x Small OLED 0.96 display (link) - The Debug console
  • 1x DC-DC 24V-5V module (link) - to power the brain from 24V power plug
  • 2x Mosfet IRLZ44 transistors (link) - to isolate the power from the command
  • 1x pcb or 1x breadboard 400pt (link)
  • 3x rocker switches and 1 main on/off switch
  • 5x 10kOhm resistors
  • misc connectors and 22AWG wires
  • soldering iron, hot glue gun and other regular electronics tools (tape, screwdriver, wire strippers, ...)

I  included links to AliExpress stores, but depending on your location you may source the components from amazon (not available in my country) or other stores.
