The Furby Gurdy Man Comes Singing Songs of Love

Via Matrixsynth, the Furby Gurdy:

Inventor Nervous Squirrel explains:

Each furby has 4 controls: mute, crash, loop and reset. The handle turns 8 cams which operate corresponding microswitches to create interesting rhythmic patterns. Part of the ‘setting up’ section at the beginning has been fast forwarded. Please commission me to make lots more of these machines!

Hang in there ’til the furbies gets revved up. It’s actually rather beautiful.

Thanks for the heads up, Jhayne! (If you haven’t been over to Whitechapel’s filthy and absurd “Things That Should Not Exist” thread, go now. Bring wet naps.)

    I had a Furby when I was 8, and it scared me.

    But this… THIS is the stuff of nightmares.

    Very cool!

    This poured into my dreams recently…they were playing their odd tune as a sea of millions.
