This is a simple box that makes all TV viewing better.
Great for parties and certainly a great gift, since you can be pretty sure your friends don't have one.
Here's my short video explaining how it's made.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mo5G-sAJFY
I don't know where the idea came from.  I saw it at a party about 15 years ago and have made them from time to time since then.

As you can see in the video, you take a cardboard box a little larger than size of your TV, cut out both sides,

cover the front in the plastic foam that often comes wrapped around new electronic appliances,

and fill the inside with tubes of cut cardboard or folded and stapled paper.


Just position it in front of your TV set, turn off the sound (unless you're watching music videos) and turn on some music.  
The bouncing colors are delightful (ck out the video).


Enjoy!
