Open up the boxes and find all the bits you need to build some bizarre robotic instruments- just connect the wires to get the motors spinning and then use contact microphones to amplify the sounds that you like. Circuit-bending, hardware hacking, unmaking and tinkering: let’s make robotic noise machines!
