If you want to make the Figure 3-20 Two-liter pop bottle and fur covering critter a bit more evil looking for well-lit environments, then add some eyes or nasty looking fangs for a truly fear-provoking experience. Some other ideas for lightweight critter bodies might be: fur-covered balloons, a cardboard cylinder, stuffed animal with the stuffing replaced with a balloon or crumpled paper. If the victim is in a household that does not have pets, then obviously this critter is an uninvited guest.
Figure 2-7 shows the schematic of the beeping thing, and you may recognize some similarities between this schematic and the last one, as they are based on similar parts and principals. In the schematic, the 555 is set up so that its output will turn on the two transistor audio oscillators formed by the pair of NPN transistors. Just like most 555 timer circuits, the timing cycle is controlled by the two resistors on pins 6, 7 and 8, and by the capacitor connected to pins 1 and 2. If you play around with the values of the two resistors, you can control the duty cycle of the timing pulses in order to alter both the off time and on time of the cycle to create more or less beep each time the cycle repeats.
Figure 3-9 shows several electromagnetic solenoids that would work for this project, each one able to engage from a single 9volt battery. Since the solenoid is not doing much mechanical work, often a voltage rating of 24 volts on the coil will be fine with only 9 volts, since this will still be enough magnetism to pull the pin or plate on to the coil, although with very little force. In our design, the solenoid only has to release a very light loop of wire, so as long as the plate or plunger pulls inward at 9 volts, you will be fine with any solenoid, possible even one rated at 120 volts AC such as those found in large appliances.
