Since I am not one to turn down free junk, I took them and did as instructed. Indeed, after some poking terminals with speaker wires, I did get it to play some strange little tune. In fact, it was a horrible screaching techno kind of thing.
And I now had three! Oh fortune!
And so, I resolved to wire them all together so that they could play out of synch and make some really strange and distorted digital instrument or the sorts.
I added some photocells and a snowman I had lying around and made my cell phone penguin a new seasonal appropriate friend.
