my kind of thread :slight_smile:

Posted about it before elsewhere but here’s The Fort Processor, which we (Isn’tses) developed as part of Fort Process sound art festival. It’s based on the layout of Newhaven Fort where the event takes place, and it mangles external signals and/or generates light and touch controlled sounds. More info and PCB orders at http://isntses.co.uk/blog or you can buy a full kit from Thonk,

Come and build one with us at our workshops:

While not quite PCB art, this is an amazing breadboard layout of an 8 bit computer by Ben Eater that I just had to share somewhere!

We made some Isn’tses blank panels :slight_smile: Pleased with how they came out. So many possibilities with the different layers when you don’t actually have to make a functioning circuit :smiley: Artwork by Lisa McKendrick
