Henry sent this in just in time for us to ignore Slashdot’s terrible story on JuiceBox hacking. The JuiceBox is a simple personal video player designed for people who don’t care about resolution or framerate, supposedly kids. Major retail chains have started dropping the prices of these units so you can pick one up pretty cheap. Probably the cheapest MMC based MP3 player you’ll find. To get more info on the hardware and the uClinux OS that it runs check out the JuiceBox page at the eLinux wiki. Details and pictures of Henry’s boom bag after the jump.
The speakers and grills were scavenged from a pair of cheap computer speakers. He picked the JuiceBox up on eBay and got the messenger bag from American Eagle. The components were wired to a pair of rechargeable batteries. Add one gratuitous knife switch and you’re done. All told the project cost about $30. Click for hi-rez.
He also sent along a video just prove that it turns on.
