Halloween is just around the corner. So it’s time to start building projects to scare and prank your friends. I decided to start off this year by making a haunted TV. In this project I show you how to use a cheap pair of walkie talkies to make strange and eerie sounds come from your TV. One walkie talkie is hidden inside the TV. When you speak into the other walkie talkie, your voice will appear to come from the TV.

You could pretend that it is a ghost. You could pretend that the TV is intercepting signals from aliens. Or you could make it appear that they TV is bugged and you are being watched by big brother with a SWAT team closing in. Use your imagination and have fun.

Warning: Cathode ray tubes can still retain a high voltage charge even after unplugging the TV. To safely discharge them, please read this.

Here’s the link to the full project.
