[fades] browns and reds

More circuit-bending fun--

E-Baying for more Thereminy goodness, and, through a series of links, came to this horrible thing to do to a speak-and-spell--namely, the "Speak 'n' Roil. You can actually buy things like this. This isn't as neat as the Incantor, a Speak'n'Spell designed to be played by marbles shifting around on its surface. It would spit out all these unholy phonemes...very strange. This is kind of neat as far as Java applets go.

I wish I knew more about electronics (I know, "you could learn...") I suddenly want a circuit-bent instrument that uses an Atari or Nintendo cartridge for its primary sound source. You could pop out the game and plug in another for more fun. One of the controls should be a joystick, but those wear out so easily...
