# N-Tune — Tuning where you need it…in your guitar

N-Tune features

  • Fast, accurate tuning, built right into your guitar.
  • Pull your volume knob to tune up silently; push knob back down to play.
  • True bypass design preserves your instrument’s original tone.
  • Installs in your guitar in 30 minutes – no drilling or permanent modification required.
  • Includes white, black, cream and parchment-colored tuning rings.

N-tune is available for single-coil guitars with 250k Ohm volume pot, and humbucker-equipped guitars with 500k Ohm volume pot.

# FOUND ELECTRONICS » Projects » Circuit Bent – Found Electronics has, over the years, produced a wide variety of circuit bent instruments: devices whose original function has been mangled and transformed into weird and wonderful creators of noise.

# Hacking Toys into Tangible Controllers – Here are some recent projects from year 2 of the Creative Media course at DKIT. The student groups were each given a toy and assigned the task of hacking it together with a keyboard to create a controller for an original interactive experience made in flash and/or director.

# 1-star review of The Incredible Hulk in Hulk-speak

Peter Bradshaw wrote his 1-star review of The Incredible Hulk in Hulk-speak:

“Hulk. Smash!” Yes. Hulk. Smash. Yes. Smash. Big Hulk smash. Smash cars. Buildings. Army tanks. Hulk not just smash. Hulk also go rarrr! Then smash again. Smash important, obviously. Smash Hulk’s USP. What Hulk smash most? Hulk smash all hope of interesting time in cinema. Hulk take all effort of cinema, effort getting babysitter, effort finding parking, and Hulk put great green fist right through it. Hulk crush all hopes of entertainment. Hulk in boring film. Film co-written by star. Edward Norton. Norton in it. Norton write it. Norton not need gamma-radiation poisoning to get big head.
