HAH Final Project

Circuit Bending A Musical Toy TV Remote (I thought it was a toy phone) Once I cracked open the enclosure, I disconnected the the red and black wire from the battery compartment and reconnected it using a couple of alligator clips. I took a small wire and just started touching different points of the circuit… Continue reading HAH Final Project

HAH Final Project Proposal

For my final project, I plan to circuit bend a kids toy — something I can find at Target most likely, if not I have a G.I. Joe pack. I will post here once I purchase the item I’m going to circuit bend. Here is the victim.

HAH Midterm Project

Phase 1 – Planning Before coming up with a design for my circuit, I thought about what I want it to include. Ideally I’d like to have four gated oscillators, two of which can be controlled by either a fader or a photoresistor, a third by a potentiometer, and a fourth controlled by a textile… Continue reading HAH Midterm Project

HAH – Week 5

I played around with different combinations of gated oscillators, changing the variable resistors as well as the capacitors. First, I tried to make the first and second oscillators sum into one feed, and the third and fourth sum into another feed, with the two separate feeds being the input to the speaker. It worked, but… Continue reading HAH – Week 5

Hacking Audio Hardware Week 3

Baby’s First Oscillator! I mean .. my first oscillator. To start this off, I forgot I blew my speaker and replacement from the first class. So I attempted to use my QBox and SoundBullet for speakers. I tried both. Below is the first circuit using a potentiometer. Next, same circuit different variable resistor. I used… Continue reading Hacking Audio Hardware Week 3
