Like this story, reminds me of my first electrical circuit, it was a high-voltage generator, using a battery and couple of transistors, it was an interesting challenge to hold on to thiose metal bars!

That was one my first few circuits too. Much before I studied engineering, since my childhood I was passionate about building small electronic gadgets by referring to books/magazines which used to publish hobby circuits. Even though I did not fully understand how that circuit worked, I built that circuit with two transistors and a small speaker form an old radio. My friends and I had fun with that for some time.

That is good idea and design. Now it can be done with simple piezeo buzzer.
