Scary Putin guards your stash

If anyone tries to take anything from this coin bank they’re going to have to brave the creepy looks that [Vladimir Putin] gives them. That’s because [Overflo] rigged up the wall hanging to react when you approach it. It’s all in the eyes, which open and turn red based on your proximity to the picture frame.

The frame itself is the ugliest thing [Overflo] could find at Ikea. He spray painted it gold and added an image of [Putin] with a zany background. At rest [Vlad] has his eyes closed. But the lids are connected to a servo motor to pull against the spring that keeps them shut. An infrared proximity sensor is used to trigger the eyelids when you get relatively close, but if you reach out your hand it will even light up the red LEDs hidden in the pupils of the eyes. See a demonstration of the setup in the video after the break.

    Haha, funny :) But not realistic; When you get near you should disappear through a trap door in the floor and never be seen again :P

    IMO this is rather stupid. If that’s what now is called a “hack”, then the world really degrades.

    I’d be scared Putin would steal it given his track record and his countries traditions XD

    LoL The comments here are almost 44% putin and 44% vertical video syndrome. I guess proximity sensors are really underrated.

    Did you notice the hand on the right at 0:11 probably switching the the eye LEDs on or something.

    Forget medical technology and scientific research. Things like this are electronics true gift to humanity.
