"A Munny is a figure made out of vinyl with movable joints. The figures are blank and the owner can decorate them using pens, pencils, markers, paint, and other supplies. Alternatively, some people commission artists to design Munnys for them, or artists design them to sell. The initial idea was undertaken by taggers (illegal artists) to display their works". - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Munny
This project idea came to me when my friend suggested we design/decorate a Munny. I had never heard of these little figurines prior to this so naturally, I did a quick Google search to see what they were all about and what others had done. I stumbled upon a few designs where people had built tweeters out of the Munnies which appealed to my inner engineer.
I happened to know someone looking for a bedside lamp AND a small speaker for their iPod... I was also just itching for a fun little project to kick off the dreary six month winter season. It seemed the conditions were just right to turn this Munny into a music-playing light show!
Here's a quick video of what the finished product did:
