Here's a revised schematic since I could only find 5A switches at radio shack. The switches are gluing on atm. After that I'm going to start wiring it up.

I'm mainly looking for DIY stuff, because it allows me to have more control and, well, it usually comes out better. For reference, here are some pics of last year's display.



















Here is a link to a very bad quality video of it.

So far, the only great idea I've had is for a motion detector that shoots web (silly string) at people when they get too close to the spider. I've also been thinking of redoing the spider completely so it'd have proper looking legs instead of sausages.

I don't recall all the measurements, but I know that it was 47 feet leg to leg, 17 feet front to back.

BTW, can you please edit your post so you aren't quoting the pictures?
