: The art of taking (usually consumer-grade children's toys) electronics and short circuiting them for audio effects
previously not intended by the manufacturer.
The simple directions
are to probe around the insides of a vivisected
toy to find the connections that cause distortion, repitition, pitch change etc.
After that all you have to do is solder wires
to an on/off switch, dial or button.
Maybe a little like the Frankenstein monster
projects like this can be pretty inexpensive. All you need is a bunch of wires, switchs, knobs and a soldering iron. Not to mention hours of trial and error.
Any subjects for experimentation can be found at your local thrift store. Too lazy to shop around for victims
? Trouble findng switches for under 5$ each? You can always buy one
