Check out these modified Korg Kaoss Pad’s featured on the circuit bending blog GetLoFi. I don’t know if it’s a requirement to use vintage tv/film images but I like the effect! Here’s the two articles that tell you more about the mods and people behind them:

Here’s a modded Korg Microkorg which pops the control panel up on an angle ala Moog style. I wish all synths had the panel angled. It just makes more sense. For another photo of this mod: click here

By now we all have a bunch of old spare controllers lying around so why not hack the hell out of the them? Luckily Brooklyn native Moldover has posted this video showing us exactly how to do it. You need controller (duh), a screwdriver, some plastic, rubber, scissors, glue and a permanent marker. The marker is optional because it’s only to make things, “look cool”.
The hilarious thing is all he does is pull out some keys, glue rubber on the rest of them, draw on the case and assign controllers to stuff. I have to say this is completely stupid and awesome all at the same time!
