Build Electronic Gizmos to Play 20 Tricks (Klutz Gotcha Gadgets)

Author(s): Ben Grossblatt


Science in the service of immaturity

Cross a hands-on science kit with The Encyclopedia of Immaturity®, and what do you get? Gotcha Gadgets -- a set of customizable, constructable electronic gizmos, along with an entire book of games, pranks, and jokes that make the most of them. All you need to add is one 9-volt battery and a healthy mischievous streak.

Klutz-clear explanations of the principles of electronic circuitry accompany step-by-step instructions on how to wire (and re-wire) your own door alarm, motion sensor, light sensor, and push-button device. For each gizmo, pick from a library of sounds: wild applause, a scream, the classic sad trombone, and what we shall describe here as a socially unacceptable gaseous release. It's like a science fair exhibit with the soul of a whoopee cushion.

The 16 different sound-and-gizmo combinations offer limitless opportunities for immature humor. Think of it: Thousands of scientists and engineers worked over the course of hundreds of years to develop the materials that come with this book -- all so you can booby-trap your dad's lunch bag. Isn't science wonderful?
