Boomy The Boombox

For AdaBox subscribers, in each Adabox you'll find super awesome Adafruit Collectible pin. In AdaBox 004, it's Boomy The Boombox. Now you can make boomy into an actual enclosure with 3D printing! Boomy is a super cool boombox that likes good vibrations and enjoys beat boxing. Boomy loves playing music and likes to reminisce about 1980's culture.

From Wikipedia

The first boombox was developed by the inventor of the audio compact cassette, Philips of the Netherlands. Their first 'Radiorecorder' was released in 1966. The Philips innovation was the first time that radio broadcasts could be recorded onto cassette tapes without the cables or microphones...

AdaBox 004

This project uses the awesome parts that are included with AdaBox 004. No soldering required! But 3D printing is required! Don't have a 3D printer? Have someone 3D print the parts for you.
