Summer is almost here, and it’s time to start preparing for summertime fun. We here at The BBC (No Relation) want to help. Let’s start with a cool beach toy that you can make. This requires little money, little work, and little skill, which is particularly important if you’re intending to make a bunch of them for a series of jakes (or a single complicated one) or just want a lot of fun for a little effort.
The eMessage in a Bottle is an easy project for the beginner circuit enthusiast. It clearly came about from me wanting to put my voice in a bottle. Remember as a kid you tried yelling into a bottle, closing it quickly, and then opening it near your ear only to be disappointed with sounds of the ocean. No longer!
A scroll-filled bottle that plays audio of your choice when uncorked. The possibilities are endless.
