A dancing flower

May 12, 2014

I guess these were all the range at one time. It’s a flower that dances to the music. That time was the 1980s and early 90s so between twenty and thirty years ago. I feel it is very kitsch now.

The green circle in the flower pot is a microphone which responds to loud noise. This is used to drive a motor which makes the flower dance.

I have a short film of the flower, bopping to a bit of Eric Clapton. Click here to see it.

I used to be involved in teaching electronics so I rather like these weird little toys. Mine came from a jumble sale long after they were out of fashion.
