Here's an easy and cheap prank for April fools day, or any day!

Almost any bin can be hacked to scream when opened using just some easily modifyable electronics and a limit switch.

This prank had to happen to have a use for the noise maker from a flying/screaming ThinkGeek monkey bought by Mikeasaurus. After flying around the Instructables office, spilling coffee and making far too much noise, threats were made on its life and so it had to be silenced.

Step 1: Tools & Materials

  • a drill/braddle
  • soldering iron
  • a glue gun

  • a screaming/yelling toy
  • solder
  • a limit switch (Normally Closed)
  • small length of wire
<p>Hey nice project! would you have an idea on how to change the monkey sound that it makes?</p>
I have sooo got to try this out, Its hilarious!
LOL, talk about a <a href="http://www.storkpickerservices.ca/en/" rel="nofollow">garbage bin</a>! I love this, I can't wait to give this a try or get my hands on one of those! I am always for a good laugh and joke. Thanks again for sharing!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------<br><br>Hi there,<br><br>Hasn't anyone thought of the idea of having some Western-Scotland style music as a play song ??? THAT way you banshee's and a gaelic pub-orchestra living in your bin !
Haha good job! The idea for a birthday card could b cute too but might tear apart easy in the trash. Could record your own &quot; greeting&quot; tho
You can also use the sound chip from a singing birthday card! Very Nice.
Good one :-)
That's awesome! Thanks for sharing. ;)
