We made this chicken as part of the Instructables August Build night with Jameco
. Our makerspace is called Make Shop
, we're in Dublin and we're part of the Science Gallery
. Since Jameco were nice enough to give us some 555 timers, we thought it would be cool to use them to make some crazy noises. We had some LDRs in the shop so we used the breadboards to prototype a small light sensitive synthesizer circuit. I later transferred it onto a tinier breadboard, and then onto stripboard. Then I put it in a chicken because I thought it would be funny. When you're making this yourself, you can use anything you want! I replaced the chicken's eyes with the LDRs, but you could use a bear, a cat, a weasel, a handbag, a hollowed-out book, a sombrero, an Altoids tin. It's up to you and your imagination.
