There was a project in Make Magazine a couple years back; complete with a relatively powerful but somewhat expensive kit. There seems to be some discussion on cheaper alternatives on the Make blogs.

One of your best bets would be to find one of those dancing coke cans or flowerpots, that dances when you clap your hands. I have the circuit board from one sat right here on my desk, and all you need to do is attach 2 x AA batteries and attach the two wires to the trigger wires of the flash. Hope this helps.
