This weekend, you’ll learn how to make a Minty Boost usb charger and a Daisy mp3 player. After you put these together you can put them into customized cases. I made my charger fit into a plastic dinosaur!
Then I soldered up my Daisy MP3 player and put it into a laser tag case, complete with working buttons on the gun that control volume. The trigger makes it go to the next track! Photos here – Link.
Of course if you subscribe in itunes, the videos and accompanying pdf get downloaded automatically for you, no muss no fuss. You can browse all the Make: videos on blip.tv and youtube and revver or on the weekend projects page at your leisure! – Subscribe Link
If you want to build these and/or give them as gifts, order them this weekend so they ship in time for the holidays.
