Journey Through The Solar System

Journey Through The Solar System

Earth has one moon. Here's a short film about the Solar System made with a circuit-bent Interactive Solar System, fitted with a pitch control and current starve control.

Try these simple bends for yourself. A red wire leads from the middle of the battery pack to the main green circuit board. Snip the wire in the middle and insert a 10K potentiometer between both ends. Lowers values might work better. This control acts as a current starve, which pitches the circuit down while adding glitches.

Replace resistor R22 on the brown circuit board with a 680K resistor in line with a 500K potentiometer. This resistor controls the clock circuit for the black blob CPU. The original value was 910K, so the new resistors allow for higher and lower pitches.

See for photos.
