I taped mine to a cap and hooked them up to the 6 and 7 button of a keyboard  and scripted a couple of lines in processing to create the noise.

You wil need to use a hacked keyboard (http://www.instructables.com/id/Hacking-a-USB-Keyboard/). hook up de soft buttons to the keyboard interface and use the software 'Processing' (http://processing.org/). I added the script and sound to step 5.
Um, how does this work?
