The lights are on
Instructables is a cool website that offers step-by-step instructions on everything from making quilts to "probiotic ginger beer." Just just came across one cool craft project that will be of interest to gamers: a detailed plan on how to make your own replica Zelda treasure chest -- one that even plays the iconic "opening" sound from the game.
While you'll have to go to the page on Instructables to get the full plan (done by user "pkmnjunky7"), the audio portion of the magic is done through the use of a "cheap mp3 player" and a "SPDT level switch from Radio Shack." This is pretty creative, and it works, too. We've got the YouTube video to prove it.
(good lookin' out to the big homie Percy M. for the tip)
