Ideas for things do do with iPod box Answered

Hey everybody. 

Today i found the boxes from my iPod touch and an Apple charger. I have seen what people have done with such boxes (speakers and protection) But that's not what i would like to do with them, but i don't know what else to do, so I am asking for inspiration and/or other instructables :-)

Make something solar-powered, something that moves or vibrates, and then superglue the box shut with the device inside.

Nice idea, but which things that are solar-powered and/or moves and vibrates need the device (that is working) inside the box?

I don't mean glue the iPod back inside the box! When I said "device", I meant the solar-powered thing you make.

For instance, you could make a solar cockroach (with shorter antennae), and seal it inside the box as a desk-top pet.

It would be more, fun, though, to build something that doesn't need full sunshine or big halogen lamps to run.  You could run something from a solar engine, or build something similar to the miniball.  They would sit on your desk, quietly soaking up light to charge a capacitor, then occasionally coming to life when the charge is full.




throw it at somebody over and over again.
