The speakingObject is a voice-synthesizing board that's easily tweaked with two buttons and a typical three-axis accelerometer. What's that mean? You get a completely original, vaguely human techno-ready track with the flick of a wrist. And yes, it's only a matter of time before some tripped-out a'hole at a concert is doing this right next to you while waving his iLighter high in the air. [joerg via bbGadgets]
Couldn't you get the same effects from manhandling an AM radio circuit board in a similar manner?
Heck, ground out the right antenna terminals on an AM radio and it'll send the tuner into the shortwave bands where you might have something INTERESTING to listen to.
