Hacking an old analog phone

Last week we had an amazing two-day workshop, working with and recycling electronic waste into new forms. Guest lecturers and designers Benjamin Gaulon and Brian Solon were really patient with us and totally rocked the classroom!

The workshop was a lot of fun! Not only did we get to take products apart (what’s better than that?), we learned how to use basic Arduino, start programming ourselves and give electronic waste a new life.

Marcela Teran, Elvira Grob and I hacked an old analog phone (with a lot of help from Benjamin, thanks!). The numbers were individually linked to different songs and when you’d dial a set of numbers you’d get this crazy musical mix.
