Issue  32 of “Make:” just came out; $15 from, and it captured us from the first glance inside the cover. There it was, a description of how to take one of those toy monkeys that bang cymbals together, and make it motion sensitive.

The suggested purpose was to keep pets off the couch. Put it on the couch, and whenever any creature comes within 15-20 feet of it, the monkey goes nuts, shrieking and banging his cymbals. Now of course you could put the monkey anywhere you want. You could also connect the little circuit box to something else and have it turn things on when anything came close. And that was just the inside cover!
