Using a solenoid for a speaker...It's cool, but that's how real speakers work, as they are a kind of solenoid already.

I beat you guys to it :)

My first talking skull was solenoid driven

Excel Control
Awesome!! I knew this was possible.

I want to make a prop where Hands from the grave pop up (kind of like whac-a-mole) using solenoids..but always randomly different. Any ideas on how to make it happen?

Hey Phoenix any videos of the talking solenoid working?

I may have some vid, but this was several years back, it was driven using my own software (before I started using VSA) and it wasn't all that great so I didn't use it again.

Doing what you suggest is pretty easy using VSA and a relay board, it wont be random but if you write a long enough VSA routine then it wont be easy for the punters to spot that its cyclic.
