The Voltage Slammer

The Voltage Slammer V1 The Voltage Slammer is not only a mechanism for controlling circuit bent electronics but is additionally a platform for assisting in the activity of circuit bending. This project is part of an ongoing exploration in controlling circuit bent toys, video game consoles, and instruments with Arduino powered interfaces. The Voltage Slammer…

Modular SNES

The Modular SNES is a modified Super Nintendo Entertainment System that is hacked and circuit bent using an Arduino Nano microcontroller. The Modular SNES utilizes the same approach of via-based hardware bending for finding and exploiting the SNES consoles. The Modular SNES, however, does not only provide a path to ground for these bends, but…

Rotary SNES

The Rotary SNES is a circuit bent Super Nintendo Entertainment System with twenty-two intermittent video bends made available to users through two twelve positions rotary encoder switches. The Rotaty SNES is able to play any unmodified SNES video game cartridge and provides glitched, bent versions of the game for folks to play in real time…

Circuit Bending

My circuit bending research focuses on exploring different approaches to adding external control mechanisms to found circuitry. This post provides information about a sampling of controllers designed to control circuit bent instruments in performance as well as installation settings. A few select circuit bent instruments and toys are also briefly presented. Toys The Toys interface…
