With the help of Adabox 005 parts, John Park built this super creepy haunted portrait project.

You can make a seemingly innocuous portrait come to life using an ornately framed flat panel TV powered by a Raspberry Pi. With proper lighting, it will look just like a painting, but every so often, the portrait subject's eyes will shift their gaze ever so slighting, sending chills up the spines of your unsuspecting victims, er, friends.

You'll use a hidden Raspberry Pi Zero as the image playback device to drive the TV over HDMI. Plus, you'll have a set of controls available using the buttons and thumbstick of the Joy Bonnet so you can pause and start the show, and more!
