A couple of years ago I built several of these effects which sold to vents. It is a neat way to perform the distant voice, a nice site gag as well. I combined electronics with comic mystery.

For nearly thirty years I have closed my magic shows with ventriloquism and this made a novel way to do so.

Very good.
Though I'm surprised anyone even knew what it was supposed to be in recent years, with everyone using cell phones for everything, even as their home phones and even actual home phones don't look like that any more.

Here's a vent figure I recently put together - I LOADED him with effects I always wanted. I built him as a 'back up' as I am using a figure from Howard Olson for many, many years:

Here's the inside workings:

And the finished product:

NOTE: I did tone the little fellow down with matte finish since the pictures.



He has the following features:


- Slot Mouth
- Centering Side to Side Eyes
- Raising Eyebrows
- Sticking Tongue
- Raising Wig
-Smoker/Spitter
-Blinkers


The problem is I cannot shut this guy up!!
