The birth of Zendor

Here's a prop I built a few years back.
It's a completely animated fortune teller.
There's a built-in sensor that tracks movement.
Once the sensor is triggered , the magic ball lights up
and Zendor tells you your fortune.
The sound player has 14 different fortunes.
The prop controller selects a different fortune everytime
the sensor is tripped , so you don't have to listen to the same fortune twice in a row.
The dummy is a mad scientist made by Gemmy that we fixed up a little to look more like a fortune teller.
The hands are called " stage hands" .
We had to put those on instead of the black gloves he was wearing.
The magic ball is a toilet fixture that was painted yellow.
Here are some pics of the build.
