Street Birds is a new type of electronic bird that can be seen and heard in a few (very few) places in Sweden. It’s totally quiet until a human comes and play on it.
Max Björverud and Håkan Lidbo has put together a workshop for children older than or grown-ups, building Street birds, a simple but fun synthesizer that sounds like a bird. The components are less than 5€ and a bird can be assembled in 20-40 minutes, depending on previous experience with soldering and electronics.
