Circuit Bent Teletubby by Carpeteria with it’s guts rehoused, push buttons for easy triggering and toggles for glitching up the sounds. Very Speak and Spell like plus a kick ass led matrix to display the glitches.

Trigger mechanism with a microswitch by Kaseo. This resembles a scratch interface and with pitch controls that can be connected to various other toys via a 3.5mm Jack.

Kaseo also has a new musical project, a collaboration with Craftwife. Above is some footage of them rocking out with Pikachu and Remokon APP for iPhone.

Here is more information and a demo of Remokon, which seems like a useful utility for remote controlling sounds and sending MIDI information with the some help from OSC and SuperCollider.

Here is an Atari Punk Console modification by Raymond. A PC fan is varying the voltage in the circuit and causing the frequency to shift as it spins and also adds a certain physical aspect to the device.

Instructions by Juda for turning any controller into a MIDI transmitting device with some extra USB hardware and Cycling ’74 runtime.

EraSer from circuitbend.it sent us a new instrument a while back. It is an example of “cross bending” made using two circuit bent guitar pedals. Rocktron digital distortion and a Fab Echo delay. The circuits of these pedals have been linked and re-housed in a “laptop toy” case.
