Guy Builds a Singing Furby Organ to Haunt our Dreams

Furbys may be fun for kids of a certain age, but to the rest of us they are slightly terrifying. Now they’ve become even more nightmarish in the hands of Sam Battle, the hacker and musician behind the YouTube channel Look Mum No Computer. He hacked together 44 Furby toys to build the world’s first singing Furby organ. I will be seeing this when I close my eyes tonight. No sleep for me.

While I’m impressed at Sam’s technical expertise, to be able to build something like this, what the hell has he unleashed onto the world? Watching this Furby choir and hearing their nightmarish wails just feels like I’m watching a scene from a new Gremlins movie. Like maybe they got together in a church to sing some songs before they torch the place with everyone in it.

Sam had to lots or rewiring and create custom software so that each toy would respond to commands from the keyboard, and produce specific notes and vowels on-demand. Ohhhhh, their high-pitch squeal… This is the soundtrack of a trip to hell and these sounds will stay with you all day. Hey, I had to hear it, so you do too.
