Magic 8-Ball Flash Prank Punishes the Indecisive

by Lambert Varias

Hack A Day forum member arfink was browsing through the items at a thrift store when he stumbled upon a Magic 8-Ball and a camera. The total cost of the items? $1.35 (USD). But the amusement he has obtained from the combining the two has been priceless. Arfink removed the all-knowing guts of the Magic 8-Ball and replaced it with this:

magic-8-ball-with-flash

The flash of the used camera he bought is in there, waiting for its victim. Thanks to a mercury tilt switch from an old thermostat, anyone who tilts the Magic 8-Ball will get an eyeful of light. That’s what you get for consulting a toy about your decisions in life!

As you saw in the video, arfink also connected a switch to disable the flash. This will let him conserve the battery until the next victim comes along. Get the lowdown on the hack at the Hack A Day forum.
