Unlikely Recycling: Book into Synthesizer

 |  |  |  |  |  November 20, 2011


I don’t like to hear or read about people destroying books, which is one of the reasons why I strongly dislike a few scenes in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (Indy was in Berlin witnessing a Nazi book burning), but I guess there’s something to be said for destroying a book to turn it into a synthesizer.

Gwydion ap Dafydd of Konkreet Labs was able to hollow out a hardcover copy of Mary Hahn’s Praktisches Kochbuch (Practical Cookbook) to conceal a MeeBlip synthesizer.

Gwydion chose the page well, since the glowing LED power light has been placed perfectly into the eye of a pig on the page. That’s pretty cool.

For his next hack, Gwydion promises to use a copy of Karl Marx’s Das Kapital.
