Circuit-bending specimen

Circuit-bending specimen, originally uploaded by mskogly.

I think I will spend part of this lazy Saturday prodding and poking at this electronic toy dog, bought for 19,- NOK from a thrift store in Hell. (Yes literally, Fretex thrift store run by the Salvation Army, and apytl located in a small place in Norway called Hell :) )

Hopefully I will be able to get some cool sounds out of it.

BTW: If you have battery powered toys like this you want to part with please drop me a line. Broken or not, doesn’t matter :) For me circuit-bending is part fun, part art, part electronics, and part environmentalism.

Intestines.

Stop looking at me like that!

  1. I’ve found that adding a capacitor between your bendpoint and a button (etc) often alters the sound significantly, causing interesting cutouts sometimes. I’m a total newbie to circuitbending, so I usually just get one from some broken down electronics, and try it in different ways until something cool happens aka Gonzo science. :)
