MAKE subscriber Luke BrownGold makes the bending experience a bit more accessible to the younger set –

Currently I am attending Parsons school of Design. This is a prototype for a toy called the BachBot 9000. It is made children who may be too young to get into circuit bending. Made with an arduino the Bach Bot front can pull off to reveal it’s plush “circuitry”. By pressing to points on its front the user can create circuit bending effects to the tune of Ode to Joy by Bach.

Get ’em started young – before you know it, they’ll be hacking the baby monitor into an amp.
