Viet Nguyen is a game developer, artist, and one of three brothers behind Asobi Tech. With all of his experience and creativity, it should come as no surprise that he’s put together a fun, interactive decoration for Halloween. Just earlier today, Nguyen shared a creepy Raspberry Pi-powered picture frame to Twitter that comes to life when anyone walks by.

It looks like something from Harry Potter but it’s not powered by magic—it’s powered by Python! With the help of a $3 passive infra red (PIR) motion sensor, the still image displayed within the frame begins to move as video playback is triggered.
