Gijs Gieskes’ Synth Car V3 seems like its straight outta crazytown! The R/C rover incorporates a collection of motion sensors to generate sound and even trigger glitches on a circuit bent camcorder. Seen above is the resulting video captured by the onboard cam, providing a view of the pinwheel which generates a clock signal for the sequencer which triggers the Gakken SX-150 synth which … well, the list goes on and on. Take a closer look at some more of the built-in kinetic triggers (box of marbles, etc) over on the project’s page – oh and don’t forget the earlier versions
