- Up to 2 minutes of sound
- Two AC socket outputs
- 10 watt Class D amplifier
All programming of outputs and sounds are done in real-time using the programming buttons on the PicoBoo. Like all other Fright Ideas controllers, you can create an elaborate scene synchronized with sound by simply pushing some buttons.
The PicoBoo AC uses a built-in flash memory sound chip that makes it easy to playback and record up to 2 minutes of sound. Hook up any audio device to the PicoBoo’s audio-in and record the desired sound straight into the chip. No computers, no drivers, no converting sound formats. Note that the sound quality is similar to AM radio.
Up to 8 scare sounds can be recorded. The PicoBoo will automatically increment through them with each scare.
The PicoBoo AC now includes a 10 watt internal Class D amplifier. This allows the use of standard speakers which are smaller and easier to conceal than powered speakers - a big advantage when you need to hide the speaker in a prop.
The picoBoo AC has two 10 amp relays brought out to two standard AC outlets. Want to leave a light turned on and then shut it off when the scare starts? No problem, each of the outputs can be set to either normally-on or normally-off.
Up to 2 minutes of animation at 30 frames per second can be recorded.
The PicoBoo AC has a trigger input that can be used to trigger the scare automatically. This is most commonly used with PIR motion sensors, beam sensors, hand triggers, or pressure mats. If you want the PicoBoo to loop your scare indefinitely, connect the - and IN trigger pins with a small wire jumper.
Our selection of triggers can be seen here.
Ambient and Scare Modes
When the PicoBoo AC isn't busy scaring, it is by default in ambient mode. Program the PicoBoo’s sound chip with what you want the patrons to hear as they approach the scare, perhaps a little foreshadowing of the terror to come. Only audio can be programmed in Ambient mode.
The PicoBoo AC has a write protection mechanism that helps prevent accidental or unwanted program changes.
