The other evening I was cutting endless sheets of robot stickers to make all the kids happy. Yes, just slicing away, minding my own business, and just then our fearless leader Eric walks in hands me three odd-looking plastic things. He informs me that they are electronic junk acquired at some schmoozing event and that if I open them up and poke around I could apparently get them to play some strange little tune.
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.
