Discussion: Christmas is finally here; any readers out there who made a circuit bent or DIY electronic project for their friend or special someone? Feel free to chime in and I’ll post the images.

Wayn3w’s Noise Synth features 3 circuit bent greeting cards, color changing LED, and Devil Ducks as knobs!

Made this tonight as a gift for a friend. Push box that says, “Happy Halloween, HAHAHAHA!” Pitch resistor replaced with touch contacts and added and extra one for speaker output. The keychain ring was inspired by this video. It was not a treat to work inside of this thing, too crammed. Some of these boxes actually don’t have a pitch resistor, pretty weak.

  1. hey, i made this for a friend i play with in a band. well, i made it and he liked it so much i gave it to him as a pre-christmas gift.

    it used to be an elephant keyboard and i “replaced” the keys with a fine tuning pot and a coarse tuning one, it also has a button that lowers one third and i set up two more that distort it but I have no pics of that newer version :s

    anyhow, my blog is in spanish so… hope you speak some spanish! hehe, there’s one pic and a vid there.

    greetos!

  2. I made this for my daughter, who likes making wacky noises. Three circuit bent musical greeting cards in one festive box. The LED in the middle is a three-color LED, and the bling on the button corresponds to the light on the LED and the devil duck knob on the potentiometer (’cause nothing suggests Christmas like Devil Ducks do!)
