More fun with circuit-bending--

I got lucky at a thrift store Saturday (no, not like that), and found an old, maybe 1992 toy--a panel with pseudomedical buttons and a fake phone, a "V-Tech Little Learner Dr Doctor."

Happily, it uses intergrated circuits that I can actually access, so it's a lot easier to bend than something with a little chip under epoxy. Had a lot of success with it, found lots of interesting little connection points. I need to go shopping to get some capacitors, resisters, and other parts to make my short circuits a little more complex than "wire goes here," and play around with them some more.

Anyway, lots of success in making strange noises with this toy :)
