Circuit Bending: The Video Beetle

So far my adventures in circuit bending have all been about making or modifying unusual sounds. For this project I tried something altogether different: a device modified to generate corrupted visual nonsense, which can then be recorded and used for editing projects or generated live and projected on a screen during Non-Bio gigs.

The gadget used was originally a Spiderman Plug & Play TV game which connects to any composite RGB input. I added four controllable bends to the main circuit board as well as a (more accessible) reset button for when my mods cause it to crash.
