Hello,

I have a spring animal that I use in my act. I am trying to find a way to make his "Box" shake and rattle peridically throughout the show. Having a gimmicked table rather than a gimmicked box would be ideal. Some sort of remote activated table that would make the box look like it had a restless critter in it.

Any ideas or resources to point me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Mabey instead of a box use a paper bag and you can get one of those balls that has a raccon tial on it. The figure out a way to have it remote activated........ just an idea

Its a nice thought.

I played with one of those balls earlier on. I use the box to vanish the animal later, so a paper bag is kind of out of the question.

Does anyone know anyone who specializes in remote activated props?

You can buy a little remote controlled car for under $10 these days. Put one either in the box or rig it under the table with some magnets.

Slim King has a good idea. If you make the car motor drive a wheel that is very unbalanced, you could make the table shake by activating the motor remotely.

The remote controlled car is an interesting idea.

I spoke to the people at Axtell and they said they have been working on something like this for a while. I guess ill keep experimenting until I hear more news.
