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.
Step 1: Go get stuff.
1 - stuffed snowman
3 - cheap techno noise-making circuits
3 - photocells
1- dpst switch
1 - 1/8" audio jack
1 - small speaker
- needle and thread
- soldering iron and solder
- some hookup wire
- electrical tape
Step 2: Prepare the noise.
You will notice that there is a glob of hot glue around the LED. This needs to be pried off with a utility knife since it is hiding one of the terminals that you need to solder to for the speaker.
