This revolutionary Texas Instruments Speak and Math Geetar Mod is sure to turn heads after you strap it on and let the glitches rip Jimi Hendrix slylee. I would suggest that the builder used 1×1 inch for the case and PVC for the neck. Of course the instrument is spray painted mate black to go with the S&M theme. The glitches are activated with alligator clips or wet fingers when placed across the heavy gage copper strings. No sounds clips yet and the pictures are not the greatest. [via Benders list]
–Update– The artist behind this is Wark Atoo and he enclosed a short sample of the device.
Tom Green recently posted this novel recasing project of the Franklin the Turtle Numbers game to the Bender list. Great job on the knobs and the wooden case. Wiring inside is not too shabby either, zip ties and all. Surprisingly interesting sounds are also achieved from such a simple toy. The seemingly haphazardly placement of knobs, switches, and buttons works well in this case. Very nice job Tom.
In the next few posts I will be exploring links posted to the Benders list via Arc Angel’s email. The text is mostly in Spanish so I have no clue as to what it says. I could use an online translator, but I’m too lazy. What we have here looks like a metal detector hooked up to a custom Amp made of a piece of luggage. Very nice design idea, portable and rugged.
*Update* More information on the synth along with some videos can be found here.
For a mere $69.97 one can aquire a sweet looking Radiation Detector from Sports Man’s Guide. Not really sure why anyone would want to gut something like that, but for the art of circuit bending and synth making nothing is off limits.
*Update * The detector is still available as of 2/21/2007! The price dropped to $59.97, good bargain.
