This instructable details how to make a coke can prank (or any drinks can) that will laugh when picked up and tilted towards the mouth.
It's a great prank to play on friends/colleagues/family when you get a chance to swap out their drink for your rigged one!
I tried to make this ible as simple as possible to make it accessible to as many people as possible. Where I could I taped instead of soldered. Info in the steps should be transferable to most other noise making toys!
- drinks can
- toy that laughs
- tilt switch
- electrical tape
- wire strippers
- soldering iron
- punch or nail
- hacksaw blade or scissors
Step 1: Opening Up the Can
Turn over the can. For items required in this step, see picture two.
With a punch or nail, pierce the bottom of the coke can. Wiggle it until the hole is wide enough to insert a hacksaw blade.
Gripping the hacksaw blade in the pliers (or your fingers if you're hardcore), cut a slit. Cut two more slits so the bottom of the can is divided into six. Once the hole is larger, using a strong pair of scissors may be easier than the hacksaw blade.
Carefully push the six tabs inwards to make a hole. Dividing the bottom of the can more is better, it will cause the rim to bend less and your can won't wobble then.
