Do you have to have a 3D printed box, or is there another box type object you can put this in? I do not own nor do I know of a place where I can use one

I'm using the box mostly just to attach the electronics to my belt. Radioshack sells project enclosures that come in various sizes. You could probably find one that the electronics could fit into.

GREAT!!!! Is the accelerometer ADXL345(https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9836)?
I think that it is ADXL335(https://www.sparkfun.com/products/9269).

Thanks for pointing that out. It is the ADXL335. I'll update it.

LOL! Nice video!
I see as-seen-on-tv exercise product potential. You should market it.

OH GOD I NEED THIS!

I'll use it to play funk music as I walk down the street! :D


er..looks like its not really responsive. do you think the lag is in whatever youre using for a sensor? accelerometer of some kind?
ElectricSlim (author)  the new voodoo2 years ago
It is using an accelerometer. I didn't spend a lot of time trying to optimize the code but just enough to get the proof of concept running. When you're moving the box in your hand you can get it to start and stop without any lag but dancing sometimes creates a little bit of lag in the shut off.
