Product Faqs

Ask a Question

  • How can I make 2 Talking Skulls talk to each other?
    The manual describes how to hook them up to talk to each other. Also, you need a stereo audio track that has one skull audio on the left channel and the other skull on the right channel. You can use the free audio tool "Audacity" to create such an audio file. Wiring information is in the paper manual you received and also the PicoTalk Manual (see page5) Free Audacity software

  • Will the Talking Skull fit a Bucky skeleton?
    Yes, it does fit a Bucky skeleton. If not a head turning Talking Skull then our Talking Skull to Bucky Mounting Kit has the appropriate nuts and washers to secure it in place. The head turning Talking Skulls have a female mounting point with set screws. The hole fits up to 5/16" rod. This slips onto a bucky skeleton neck bolt perfectly without the need for any additional hardware.

  • What type of LED's work with the Talking Skull?
    Any standard LEDs will work. The operating voltage of standard LEDs is usually around 1.2 volts. Anything from 1 to 2 volts will work fine. Which is almost every LED out there. They just can't be LED assemblies that already have integrated resistors, such as our nano spots, mini spotlight LEDs, etc.

  • If you can use 2 skulls to talk to each other by using the left and right channels will 4 skulls talk to each using 4 channels?
    Short answer - yes. A normal audio player (such as out BooTunes, a CD player, iPod, etc) has one stereo output. A stereo output has two channels (a left and a right). So to make two skulls talk to each other you use a spliter cable to split the left and right so each can go to one of the two skulls. Simple enough. To have 4 skulls talking at the same time you need to do the same thing to two audio players and have those players fire off at the exact same time. this is easiest using the BooTunes.
