Have you ever seen a synth and said "Man, what this needs is cartoon eyes?"
A bit similar to the Buchla Box
in that they don't have a keyboard to control the sounds -- it's probably closest to the Booper, invented by The Weatherman
(or, well, Circuit Bending
), the Thingamagoop is a photosynthesizer
... which means it basically uses light sensors to generate sounds. The signal's run through a couple oscillators and, well, it comes out as somethin' that's pretty dang awesome
. I'm on the fence on pickin' this one up. On one hand, it's a really neat toy that makes noise... on the other hand, um.... um.... I dunno. It's not made of candy?

is the electronic art of the implementation of the creative audio short-circuit. This renegade path of electrons represents a catalytic force capable of exploding new experimental musical forms forward at a velocity previously unknown. Anyone at all can do it; no prior knowledge of electronics is needed." - Reed Ghazala. More proselytizing
from Ghazala, and a LiveJournal
for up-to-the-minute advice, feedback and opinions.

There are lots of toys modeled after automobiles, but no automobile has ever been modeled after a toy (?), until now. The insanely popular Choro-Q line of toy cars of Japan (ebay pics here
) have inspired a whole new line of impossibly cute real cars
, to be unveiled in November of this year. The tiny, brightly colored electric autos
look like something straight out of a Roger Rabbit cartoon, seat one, go 50 miles on a battery charge, and cost around $10,000.00 - $16,000. Must...have...one...
