Nerds Gone Wild – The Furby Gurdy!

| March 2, 2008

Some of you may be aware of a sub-culture of nerds that like to “bend circuits”. That means taking perfectly usable electronic items and re-purposing them for other things. Sometimes bizare other things. One of the big realms of this is taking anything that makes noise and re-wiring it’s brains to make strange noises for use in avant-garde compositions.

Such is the case here. Some twisted genius took 8 baby Furbies, re-plumbed their brains and created a bizarro musical instrument that they call a “Furby Gurdy”. At the start of the video you can hear him “tuning up” the Furby array, and then play a strange 8 note sequence by turning a crank.

Both wonderful and disturbing at the same time. Well done!
