Picture of Musical Grenade
For those situations that just need the extra lightening up, or a portable rick roll machine, what ever audio you have on your ipod will shuffle will come to your rescue when you have the musical grenade on your side. you can use this the fend off an enemy in an intense airsoft battle as a decoy grenade... what ever sound you download to your Ipod is not a projectile. I hope to see other peoples inventions of these sort because there are tons of things you can do with this with an Arduino board.

(A video of this in action will be available in a week or so)

Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials
1.Speakers with Ipod aux connection.
2. Large beer can, or Arizona ice tea can (just go for something bigger then a standard coke can.
3. and an iPod, preferably a shuffle... something you can throw around a little bit more. 
1. Spray paint and Sharpie 
2. Dremel, grinding bit, and cutting bit
3. Soldering iron and solder.
4. A vice is useful.
5. Hot glue gun and Pliers 
6. Proper safety equipment 

Step 2: Releasing the Pressure

Picture of Releasing the Pressure
We want the end result to look like an un opened soda can for a grenade pulling pin effect, so we are not going to touch the tab on the top, if you are a good shot with a airsoft gun go ahead, stand back and shoot towards the very bottom of the can. Most of the contents should come out. If you do not have and airsoft gun handy, the messier way of doing this is with a screw driver, make sure you are out side because contents will spill everywhere. Go ahead and give the can a hard stab, be careful. Now when you cut into the can with your dremel, you wont have as big of a mess.

Way to think out of the box!
More like "Way to think out of the can!"
Very clever idea to lure enemies in airsoft wars. One question, have you tried it in battle?

Watch out, it needs ventilation.
LucasOchoa (author)  craig33 years ago
If you wanted ventilation, the lip on the Coors light beer can is actually wide mouthed to provide extra ventilation :)
Well the speakers need ventilation otherwise the coating on the wires could melt out.

good point there, im not to worried though it isnt a device that i will be using for a long period of time if you know what i mean. if i wanted to listen to music i could have just kept the original packaging of the speakers, now that i think of it there really was no ventilation for the speakers the think was so cheap... anyway its people like you that help me out thanks so much dont forget to rate comment and subscribe. thank you
ah of course, no worry's, i do like the whole idea its pretty cool. I may even use it to make my own cool beer an speakers.
