It starts with a 90% discount pumpkin flasher.
I used a flatbed car , First with a Krylon spray cap.
The I painted a McDonalds Fudge Sundae Cup and last a red cap for cooking spray. I will say the flasher will be annoying but the kids will go for it. You have to remove the covers to shut the light by pressing down. A little scotch tape will hold it down.
I used low light to show the glow but it does flash.

Well to bring you the best, I found an Mc D Avatar figure. The figure was dismembered and left off screen. THis circuit removed from the chest is a blue LED and voice activated. I thought it was more motion activated. The circle is the receiver. The three batteries are in the blue shell on the back. The switch is to the right. I place it on a flatbed and it lit until the train stopped. I thought it was like a welder setup but no I verified it was voice activated. I had to watch a 4 minute video/crtique, while an 8 year old described the thing. I wouldn't torture you with that. Well I had to find out.

T-Man,

That's totally cool ... amazing technology, all in a give-away McD's toy. Do ya' think the sound sensor is some sort of diaphragm with conductive graphite inside ... sort of old school microphone to complete the circuit?

Jeez ... that little 8-year-old geek is using words like "Articulation" ...

He's gotta have some CNET techs as his parents, huh?
