The Furby Gurdy

The Furby Gurdy

Ran across this circuit bent Furby sequencer over at the Matrixsynth blog –

Each furby has 4 controls: mute, crash, loop and reset. The handle turns 8 cams which operate corresponding microswitches to create interesting rhythmic patterns. Part of the ‘setting up’ section at the beginning has been fast forwarded. Please commission me to make lots more of these machines!

The video starts off a bit slow but gets pretty interesting around the halfway mark. Interesting to see a mechanical/electronic hybrid instrument! – [via]Link

    That sounded horrendous. It’s much worse than even a swarm of off-the-shelf Furby.

    Is sound like that, or is there some real purpose for this..oddity not shown in the video?
