plz help mel

Do you have an old guitar pedal just lying around your house? Want to help out an awesome community project? The Musical Electronics Library needs your donations! MEL is looking for guitar pedals, or any musical equipment, in any condition. It doesn’t matter if it’s broken or ruined, we will take your fuzz boxes, keyboards, toys that make sound, anything we can potentially fix up and lend out as part of our free library collection. Get in touch! Email kraus [AT] kraus [DOT] co [DOT] nz or drop donations to the Audio Foundation, sub-basement of the Parisian Tie Factory, 4 Poynton Terrace, Auckland Central, Auckland. Thanks o(^・x・^)o

Circuit Scribe: Draw electronic circuits where the drawings work electronically, you see?

Conductive silver pens have been around for ages, but this Circuit Scribe project, they claim it’s easier to draw with, and they made magnetised components to go with it. So you can draw a circuit and stick components onto the traces magnetically. Seems like a good idea for teaching kids the principles of basic electronics. Also maybe you could make your own magnetic components, or just stick them on there some other way. And then make pretty pictures that have sound and flashing lights. Good for an exhibition at the Audio Foundation?
