Atari Punk Console Bit by Juan Hernandez. “This is a basic module for the Synth Kit, perfect for those who are beginning to prototype their own modules (like me) using the Hardware Development Kit. The APC circuit is a very popular design. It is often built as a self contained sound device with a speaker or a line out connection, but for the purpose of integration with the Synth Kit I was looking for an easy way to add an input of some sort. I found the schematics for a mod to the circuit in the fritzing.org page called Atari Punk Console with CV inputs.” Listen to how it sounds with a sequencer Bit:

The Light Up Hat – Story of Bits by Edona Bejtullahu and members of the Bonevet Chapter, Gjakova, Kosovo. “One day some Bits decided to gather in an orange hat because they wanted to make it feel special. They made it shine as never before.” Awww!
Bookmark Dispenser. Mrs. King and students from Kirby’s Mill School Chapter, Medford, NJ made this chain reaction contraption to hand out new bookmarks in the library. What will they think of next?
Have a super week, everybody. Keep inventing! 🙂
