DIY Nintendo Toaster works Perfectly!

Fully Functional NES inside toaster

Here’s an interesting DIY light bar controller that might interest your weekend hacking desires.

This device analyses the music it picks up via the electret microphone, then flashes the LEDs in time to the music. It’s encased in the box SparkFun sent me the microphones in, since the box was just begging to be used as a case for something! I’m sure that was intentionally designed.
