In the Maker Shed: Atari Punk Console Kit

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!
