It's purely decor - no speakers inside, it's just the mechanics that make the noise! I got it from a car boot a few years before I started circuit bending. The noise had always been mildly annoying, but after a while managed to put 2 and 2 together to solve the problem. :)

Actually, on a similar note to you mentioning disabling the motor on more conventional bending subjects, if you use a voltage divider pitch control the LEDs on some toys play with the pitch as they turn on and off, so I've taken to putting a disable switch on for those as well. But I also agree, the spastic movements can be great, and very complimentary to the sounds :)

dragged this outa da archives, dunno if you guys have seen one of these by texas instruments, a computer fun.  It has rather cool little pictures of robots on it.   I should really stick batteries in it and listen to it, never actually got round to fuckin it up.

thats not surprising Paul, you do run circuitbenders uk after all  ;D good to see it's bendable, as i noticed it's the super speech synth thing same as the super speak and spell which i found pretty uncooperative apart from producing distortion or a stream of garble.  Was the computer fun a cooperative patient on the modifiying table?

Its an odd one. The first one i had was years ago, it was extremely bendable and it produced that demo. The second one i had looked more or less identical but none one the notes i had made from the first one seemed to work on it. I think i might have given that one away.

I think i've got another one in a cupboard somewhere, but unless i get extremely bored one day thats probably where its going to stay, unless anyone wants it................

First post by me!!!
I've just cracked Brian the Robot of the Confused Dot Com site..
On first inspection there seems to be provision on the board for a pitch resistor, but it's bridged...
Shouldn't be to much of a hurdle..!
I hope to fit a pitch LDR, output jack, power starve, diode distortion, and an LFO..
Not sure what the LFO's going to do, but I'll have fun finding out... ;D
