Background
The Boombot is the result of a collaboration with toy customization company Delicious Drips and vinyl toy manufacturer, Urban Warfair. Together they have merged to start a new venture called Boombotix.

How To
We're gonna tell you how you can make your own prototype right here and get bumpin'.


Materials
In order to make your own Boombot, you're gonna need about $40 in materials, which is not bad. You will also need a soldering iron and a drill with various size bits. You will need a 1.75mm drill bit and a 2.2mm drill bit. You will also need something to cut through vinyl. A dremel with a rotary tool, a saw, or a razor will work. You will also want a grind wheel or a dremel to shape plastic.

Here's what you need:
1. DIY Skully

3. You need 3/8" Thick acrylic that's about 4"x4", and a 1/2" thick piece of plastic that's around 1/2"x2" (check Tap Plastics)

4. 2mm threaded screws that are about 6mm long (any hardware store)

I got them from Target. I got an extra one if you want it but you'll still need an amp

i just noticed in the second video.... actually noticed in the beginning but not cared. That's an X-mini speaker isn't it? How do you make a amp board to be build in?

nice idea, best of luck
How hard would it be to add an output to this? so it'd be kinda like a smokey mini amp (http://guitars.musiciansfriend.com/product/Smokey-Mini-Amp?sku=483005&src=SHPSIMMF&ZYXSEM=0). then you could also use it for playing bass on the move.
