WATCH: Furby toys sing in chorus and sound like a weird organ
Furby toys may be cute talking by themselves or with a couple of their buddies, but having an entire group of them “singing” to mimic an organ is something else entirely.
Patreon musician and electronic DIYer Sam (who also goes by the name Look Mum No Computer in YouTube) wired around 44 Furby toys to an electronic keyboard to create what he calls a “Furby organ.”
His Furby organ retains some functions similar to that of an electronic keyboard. Preset beats will have some of the Furbies “sing” a beatbox while the rest respond to strokes of the keys.
The result sounds either like a weird chorus of cute things singing or a weird collection of sounds perfect for a horror movie sequence.
Furbies are electronic interactive toys which function like robot pets. Overtime, a Furby toy will learn various expressions, develop habits and learn their owner’s voice. They also learn to speak more fluently and less “Furbish” the more the toy interacts with their owner. JB
