Kits and Casemods: Laser tag MP3 player, Dinosaur USB charger! – Make: Video Podcast

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.

Here’s an mp4 that plays on pretty much everything. Here’s a 3gp and 3g2 for people who like to watch on their phone!

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 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.
