Animatronic hand plays by fan

Craft & Design Music

Artist Kitty Clark bent several circuits to shape this piece entitled “Remote Controlled Hand” –

A hybrid of a remote controlled car & mechanical hand generates random music.

The car is controlled by an altered remote, which is triggered by 2 desk fans. When the fans are directed at the remote, contacts are blown together and the circuit is completed, sending the car up and down the keyboard in random directions.

    Wow, it may be random and monotonous, but this is much better than the trance/techno music that accompanies the other 99.76% percent of YouTube videos.
