First Look: The Thingamagoop 2 Anthropomorphic Synth Robot

Last week, Bleep Labs introduced the Thingamagoop 2 with a teaser at their site.

Now they’ve put together this video showing the Thingamagoop 2 in squelchy action.

The Thingamagoop 2 is a DIY kit that sells for $100.

Here’s what’s new in the Thingamagoop 2:

  • Analog VCO controlled by analog or digital signal from Arduino. (A separate Arduino board is not required)
  • Sample and hold, Arpeggios, noise, and bit crush effects with open source code so you can program your own sounds!
  • All the analog sounds of the original Thingamagoop.
  • Controllable LEDacle – Ramp and random waveforms with rate control.
  • New modulators – Square wave amplitude modulator and triangle wave pulse width modulator.
  • Tough, stomp box type body with silk screened graphics in 3 different styles.
  • Easy to access battery – No more screws!
  • Much fuller and louder speaker.
  • CV in and out.
  • Arduino Programmer jack. Easily hook an Ardunio board up to the Thingamagoop 2.
  • Kit now comes with a pre-drilled enclosure.
  • Still assembled in Austin, Texas by Dr. Bleep and friends.
