Is there anyway to have a song (preferably 3-4 on random) be played through a little speaker without having to use a large memory chip or what have you?

I'm thinking about a project involving having an audio file played when the box is opened (will be enclosed in a Altoids tin - that's why it needs to be small!)

Is there a PIC or something that can do this somewhat easily? I was even thinking about swiping one of those little things that you record your voice into from a place like Build-a-Bear or something and hacking that to do what I need it to.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Only thing I can think of is the Minty MP3, but it might be overkill.

Whichever way you go, you are going to have to use some kind of Flash memory solution to store that music.

I would think that building one out of the guts of a small MP3 player would be the easiest way to do it. There is lots that can be done with a soldering iron and some effort but it is not usually smaller than what is available commercially.

Have a look at the latest episode of inDigital Jessica shows off an MP3 player that is the same size as a credit card (fits into a credit card pocket in a wallet).

Does it have to be audio or would a simple tune work. You could use a musical greeting card. Smile
