    'explode' on demand vase & statue

    I've picked up a set of 4 central door lock activators for $50AUD, I'll have a play with them. I have ordered an 8 channel DMX relay board worth $120AUD so I can control it all from my lighting desk. I like the idea of including a bit of talc for a more visible 'explosion'.

    'explode' on demand vase & statue

    Yup, thanks, I had thought of the mousetrap & the central locking system.I reckon if I go to supercheap auto & buy an aftermarket central locking system & have a bit of a play, I'll work something out.

    'explode' on demand vase & statue

    Special effects for live theatre? I need a vase & then a statue to 'explode' on demand as if they were hit by a bullet.Obviously we can't use explosives in front of a live audience in an 80 year old wooden theatre.I am thinking of a solenoid actuator like something out of a pinball machine...
