This looks like a really fun project. I've seen a couple tutorials, but they just focus of on the mechanics of building it. Can anyone tell me more about this particular design? For example, why the magic number of 120 wraps of magnet wire, what happens if you double that? Why does the razor blade need to be "blued"? Why do you have to use a broken pencil, is it a makeshift resistor?

From the forums: Using Adafruit Metro to revolutionize Physics Labs 
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/02/01/from-the-forums-using-adafruit-metro-to-revolutionize-physics-labs/

Adafruit forums user vadabit posted up to tell us about his latest project for his physics honors course. He writes:

My Name is Sidharta (Sid). I am a 9th Grader in NJ (Montgomery High School) doing Physics Honors course. Although we have good equipment to measure velocity and acceleration (on a ramp), the equipment was expensive and somewhat cumbersome.

I have been playing with Adafruit’s electronics for almost 2 years now (my dad – Kumar Vadaparty — bought a lot of stuff from you and taught me a lot)….and thought why can’t I build one to measure these in a modable, affordable and portable tool.

Hey guys, check out this 3D printed Arduino Based Robot I designed and built. It uses a Sparkfun Redboard (or Arduino Uno, just had a Redboard laying around), an Adafruit Powerboost 500 shield, Adafruit PWM/Servo Shield, Continuous rotation servos, and a sensor board I wired up with TCRT5000L infrared optical reflective sensors. Make sure to check out the instructable as well!

Enter the 5th Annual Moog Circuit Bending Challenge now! #MusicMonday @moogmusicinc
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/02/08/enter-the-5th-annual-moog-circuit-bending-challenge-now-musicmonday-moogmusicinc/

5th Annual Moog Circuit Bending Challenge is live now!

Moog Music was born when a young Bob Moog started tinkering with electronic circuitry. As a boy, Moog built small radios, amps, and Theremins in his basement workshop with his father. The rest, as you know, is history.

Circuit-bending is a chance art form pioneered by Reed Ghazala in 1966. It combines art, sonic artistry and creativity. By altering the internal circuitry of electronic devices such as keyboards, drum machines, and children’s toys, circuit benders are able to produce new sounds not intended in the original design. Moogfest is proud to continue Reed’s tradition of chance electronic design via our yearly circuit-bending contest.
