Modder Builds a Furby Synthesizer Module and It’s as Disturbing as You Might Imagine

Look Mum No Computer (aka Sam Battle) clearly has some sort of strange obsession with making musical Furbys. You may recall his previously posted electronic organ created using 44 singing Furbys. I think we can all agree that is entirely too many Furbys in the same place at the same time. Well, now the mad musical scientist is back, this time adding a Furby module to a synthesizer board that can be played using the synth’s voltage input. What does it sound like? A nightmare isn’t far from accurate.

Subject 44B, as Sam likes to refer to the Furby Module, is controlled by a variety of switches located on the synth board to its immediate right, including a glitch switch, loop switch, one that makes the Furby respond to a belly rub, one that responds to feeding, and one that makes it think it’s been turned upside-down, all of which have control voltage inputs, leading to an absolute cacophony of sound.

What’s next on Sam’s list of Furby-related projects? Only time will tell, but if it involves artificial intelligence, you can rest assured it will herald the Furby apocalypse and the beginning of the end of humanity as we know it. Obviously, if that does happen, I will have a small amount of regret for ever contributing to Sam’s Patreon.
