I am to a small degree into Cigar Box Guitars, even built one myself. The same cheap "piezo pickup" I use in my cigar box guitar can be used for generating all kinds of sci-fi effects. Here's a demonstration video of the fellow CBG folks demonstrating one in action. Good luck and I hope this tip helps someone. I'll build one once I get past my lazy streak :-)

I love that! I have always been intrigued with sound. And it is amazing to see what kind of sonal textures you can get out of tiny little ordinary objects. Bern Burtt from Star Wars was and is probably the master of that. I enjoyed the video...
