We've all wanted it. Now you can build it. 

Instant dance parties.
Personal theme music. 
Motion activated music.
Booty Box.

Step 1: Gather Electronics

Wave Shield - Adafruit
Arduino Uno - Adafruit
SD Card - Adafruit
ADXL335 Accelerometer - Sparkfun
Female Headers - Sparkfun
Toggle Switch - Jameco
9V Battery Snap - Jameco
9V Battery - Adafruit

X-Mini Speaker (surprisingly good sound quality for the size) - Amazon 
Web Belt - Most workwear clothing stores

Soldering iron & solder
Wire strippers
Diagonal cutters
3D printer for the case

If only this was here before the Harlem Shake!
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)? <br>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.
This is awesome! I really need to make myself a Booty Box!
Daft Punk, huh? Definetely making one!
This is the best thing ive seen on here so far. <br>Im definately going to make this. oh yes indeed. it will be just so much awesomeness.
Great idea, great execution, best loop. Nice job!
LOL! Nice video!
I see as-seen-on-tv exercise product potential. You should market it.
OH GOD I NEED THIS! <br> <br>I'll use it to play funk music as I walk down the street! :D <br> <br> <br>
er..looks like its not really responsive. do you think the lag is in whatever youre using for a sensor? accelerometer of some kind?
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.
YES YES YES <br /> <br />I love this project :D
