    I once saw one of these rigged to a steel fruit bowl for a speaker. Does anyone know how this might have been wired?

    I like the way you put the project in a "story" video format.

    Thank you! I thought it would be a fun change and maybe make the video more interesting. I've also been on a MacGyver kick lately but I always wish that the MacGyverisms were real and that you could duplicate them. I thought it would be fun to take that idea and run with it on my own. I'd like to use this idea to show practical "hacks" that you can really use but with a fun twist.
