Getting A Little Crazy

So the group is working well to get this done for Wednesday. But we are all starting to feel the pressure a little. As can be seen below. More updates to follow soon with the coding for the shell project.


Curiosity Cabinet

Going back to the sea shells, having different shells in some form of curiosity cabinet, so that when you pick a shell up it plays different urban sounds out of it. The case could be something like the one below.

We could also do something with the names of the shells and the sound that is being played out of them, similar to what Banksy does with some of his work.

Time For a Little Bending

Thought a little circuit bending would help us along. Its so much fun so well have to give it a go as a group on Sunday.

So I went to the warehouse and got this Playschool Lullaby Glowworm, Managed to get some crazy sounds coming out of it. Thoroughly enjoyable and I highly recommend that everyone trying Circuit bending out.
