Help needed with designing/building lights-and-sound gadget for magic trick
I'm hoping someone can help direct a complete newbie. I'm a magician trying to build a gadget that looks like a steampunky-science-device. I'm working on a routine like this one:
If you go to the 09:00 mark you'll see it in action. I bought the instructional DVD from the man in the video which supposedly includes instructions on making the gadget, but although he explains the flash-paper-ignition part clearly he doesn't even touch on how to make the lights and sound.
I'm fine with woodworking, soldering etc. but I have no clue what pieces I need to buy to make flashing lights, squeally squawky adjustable sounds etc. If anyone can tell me what parts I need and how to string them together, or where to go to find suitable instructions, I'd be very grateful.
