“Atari Punk” Radio Shack Ad

The October issue of Popular Mechanics just hit the stands, with the next in the series of Radio Shack ads I’ve been working on:

Radio Shack Atari Punk Ad

This one describes how to build an “Atari Punk Console”—a simple DIY analog synthesizer.

  1. Yeah, Ken! That’s Bigtime!

    I like that Radio Shack is embracing the Maker community. I’m excited that they’ll be carrying the SparkFun modules for easier robots/projects, and Arduinos too. Power to the Makers!

    Thanks Matthew! And yes, it’s great that they’re getting back into that world.

      Loved the bit you did on the Atari Punk Console (Pop Mech Oct 2011).
      Reminded me of a DIY synth. I built in ’78 (based on a TI{ SN1976?} ).
      16 pin IC no longer made. I frightened my parents and neighbors with
      that little box… my garage band buddies thought it was “Awesome”.

      Bought all the parts I didn’t already have for APC at Radio Shack. RS
      still has a lot of electronic parts in drawers-many no longer on J hooks.

      Ken, thanks for suggesting -solderless breadboard-+-20awg jumper
      wire. Even engineers have told me “that’s the best way to test an
      electronic circuit” Everyone interested should use them.

      Can’t wait to get this APC Rockin’ ! Always Remember! Safety First!

      Thank you Ken and Forrest Mimms III
