Well Dr Who fans, this one is for you. Youtuber Martin Orman posted a video just before the new year of his very own Dalek synth. He picked up the Dalek toy at a car boot sale, so there's definitely wear and tear, but then he fitted it with an Arduino board complete with audio outputs and controls to bring his software synth to life!
The best thing about seeing projects like this is the recyclable mentality of it. An old toy which might otherwise get thrown away into a landfill. That and it's a totally fun project for kids and adults alike, create your own synthesiser and learn a bit more about electronic music!
