Maker Focus: Noisy Toys

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting articles in our blog which give you some more information on the Makers who will be participating in this year’s Faire.

First up it’s newcomers Noisy Toys who are making their first Edinburgh Mini Maker Faire appearance in 2014.

Noisy Toys produce unique instruments and interactive installations to encourage learning through the creative exploration of sound and promote upcycling to find new noisy uses for junk.

At the Faire, they will be inviting visitors to get creative, join the jam and MAKE SOME NOISE!

You can make beautiful music (or just a racket!) with an instrument built from their crates of ‘acoustic junk’ and learn about sound waves, vibrations, amplification, circuits, electrical conductivity and resistance. Also catch their Audio Assault Buddy as it makes its way round, loaded with strange and wonderful sonic weaponry and a punchy sound system and conducts experiments on unsuspecting passers-by.

Noisy Toys will have you getting into the groove and making an array of sounds in no time!
