Atari Punk Console Kit

Do you like electronic music? Ever want to build your own sound generator? The Atari Punk Console Kit from the Maker Shed is just what you need. By manipulating the two knobs you can unleash amazing sounds from the 556 timer IC. The original circuit was developed by Forrest M. Mims III. It was named the Atari Punk Console by Kaustic Machines, due to the similarity of the sounds it makes to an Atari 2600. An enclosure is not included but I’m sure you would want to make your own anyway. It does fit perfectly in a mint tin if you are looking for inspiration!

Maker Shed

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for ‘projects in a box,’ otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .
