Who really wants a useless box? Nobody. I thought so at first, but there are thousands of useless boxes on YouTube.. So they must be trendy..
In this instructable I will show you how to make a slightly different useless box, one with lights, sound and a real attitude. The box is ticking with the help of an Arduino UNO R3 board, assisted by two ISD1820 sound boards.
The wooden box I used for this project is a modified key storage box, sold by Action.
