I want to have a coffin open up and as the coffin opens an evil happens at the same time out of a speaker. How could I get the opening coffin to trigger the sound as well. This is dipping into animatronics and I know it is possible to do. So any suggestions would help. Thank you very much.

Fright props sells controllers that can do this for you, and they are top notch guys.
they carry everything from the controller to the piston that lifts the lid.

Hey thanks allen. I really want to get into this stuff but have never been able to. I really hope to get into more of this this year. Any other ideas are great too.

Is doing an animatronic like this going to be an easy project or will it take some time and some skill. I know this is a broad question and for some people it would be easy and some people it would be hard. But for an average joe like me who has never done this, easy or hard. Also are there any sites that can explain in depth how to make an animatronic like this.

Thanks for the help
