Black Eyed Peas - Rock That Body, Speaker Gun!



So I just watched the music video for Rock That Body by Black Eyed Peas and I thought it'd be a cool idea if someone figured out how to make speaker guns. I'm guessing if someone were to pursue in making one there'd be a audio cord coming out of it to attach to music player and I'd think it'd be cool if the trigger would turn on the speakers. Of course there should be a switch also that turns it on and off so you wouldn't have to hold the trigger. I'd love it if someone came up with an instructable for this. I read that they used nerf guns and speakers and painted it black.

Well, I don't think they're Nerf guns in that video, but you could certainly use one to make a "speaker gun." I guess the thing you really need to think about is, "what should a speaker gun sound like?"

no, i just held my nerf sniper up to will.i.ams and it is exactly the same! lol
Those are accually all Nerf guns, they are just painted black and have a 'speaker' attatched to the front.
Wow, they sure look different with black spray paint.

OK then, this should be a pretty easy build then.

Hmmm, yes you could make is as simple as a 555 circuit (plus a pre-amp and amp, since a 555 can't drive a regular speaker as it draws too much power), up to and including a uP to make whatever sounds one would like.

I'm thinking each "gun" could be a different part of a more complex rhythm. If you held down the trigger the sound would loop continuously. They could be played separately or together, like instruments, each person pulling the trigger at precise times to add their sound to the overall rhythm (kind of like a sequencer).
