Picture of Speaker Creature
The Speaker Creature is a renewable energy vibrobot made from the speaker found inside a computer case. Thanks to its renewable energy source, the fun never ends... well at least until the string breaks... or you drop dead from exhaustion. Yet, imagine how much fun you will have before exhaustion sets in!

Follows are directions for you to easily make your own in a few minutes time.

Step 1: Materials

Nice. I was actually looking for ideas of what to do with my extremely old 3X86 PC I have in my basement.
Would this work if I pulsed a tone through the speaker?
You would probably want to use a lower frequency. Perhaps even use something in the subsonic range, which would cause the speaker to pop at regular intervals. If you try to do this, you should post an Instructable.
I guess it would fall into the subsonic category,  I was thinking along the lines of an AC current, rather than an actual sound, which would vibrate the magnet in the speaker, the same way the old vibrating football games worked. It was just a coil with an AC charge from a wall outlet. (making a low voltage AC charge may be a bit difficult though). I noted it, and it is in line in projects. I'm in the middle of two atm, + I'm running the iwn7RC yet, and there's 13 days until windows deactivates yet, so I need to reinstall windows soon. Provided there isn't a limit on partitions, I'd like to get a win98/xp/vista & DOS partition, doing this is a small project in of it's self. Not including the time I have to spend digging through my old stuff for my disks & product keys. But you don't care about my personal life :D
Like my pc i have a laptop and  a pc on my laptop i have win xp (for counter strike and coding) and Uuntu on my pc i have .

Win 3.11 , Win 98 , Win me (runs anything there is no bugs) and Win 7
