Meet Kevin C. Smith, dorkbot member and circuit bender. He lives in Friendship with his wife and three kids. Kevin performs live with Maurice Rickard, in The Bureau of Nonstandards. He submitted a number of “circuit bent” ringtones to the project. I’ve selected two–one made with what Kevin calls a Dub Siren device, and the other made with a circuit bent and hairless Furby.
Siren2‘s audio came from a keychain that had about eight sounds on it. Kevin modified the keychain, put it into this beaut of a wooden teabox, and now it’s a Dub Siren.
Kevin removed this Furby’s fur so that he could, um, add something to the way it moved and sounded. Locally Toned ended up getting this Furby2 ringtone out of it!
