this playable furby organ isn't creepy (it's just misunderstood)

his subscriber list is spiking; his record for most-views-in-one-video has been demolished. after years of dreaming, musician/hacker/inventor, sam battle, has done it; he has combined the creepiest instrument with the creepiest toy: the furby organ. 44 singing furbys (plus one smartly-dressed conductor-furby) comprise battle’s eerie-doo-hickey, on his youtube channel, ‘look mum no computer.’ but as sensational and trending as this is, the entire project is worth serious commending in regards to technical execution.

sam is tenacious. not only would you have to be a gifted hacker to reconfigure 44 furb-furbs to respond with different pitches and keys — you would need the time and the capital to risk doing so. battle isn’t a huge youtube star with all the cash in the world to throw away on potential clickbate. he spent years dreaming up the furby organ, ‘trolling ebay’ and sourcing the materials he’d need to create such a horrific symphony of 44 furry dreamboats. despite all of this, despite the fact that no one wanted a furby freaking organ, he brought it to life anyway. if synthesizer-bicycles and DIY audio oscillators are your niche, ‘look mum no computer’ may be worth subscribing to. maybe, one day, he’ll give us an entire furby orchestra.
