I just found this. I gotta try this myself. My theory of what this does is the following: The cupper and aluminum works as a battery, much like the lemon battery taught in physics class. However because of the Al2O3 surface on the aluminum, which is released in an opscillating manner, you get spikes of voltage. This is what creates the sound. Compare it to the bubbles you get when you put a piece of a base metal in acid. That is my theory, feel free to comment it, or prove it right or wrong.

For my gig this night, I produced some new material. I actually thought most of it was so good that I have decided to release it as a free netlabel release on OXO Unlimited as soon as possible. Keep an eye on this blog (Eg by clicking my huge feed button ) so you don’t miss it.
This beast is called the BigDog quadruped robot, and is a walking robot meant for military purposes.
Now, the incredible thing isn’t that it is a walking robot, walking robots have existed at least for a decade. The incredible thing is the extreme precision at which it handles balance. That is what makes it seem so alive.
But I admit, it feels kind of freaky with that noise (Which sounds like a cry) and the two “horns” (Which are probably accelerometers)
For no good reason, I googled for Ceztir. And what I found was a bug in Google! It asked me whether I wanted to include omitted results from the 0 results already displayed. Wtf? Clicking the link didn’t show any additional results either. Has this happened to anyone else with this or other keywords?
Try it yourself - but beware that this blog post will probably ruin the whole thing when appearing in the results.
03:31 < xulthis> probably the best description 03:31 < xulthis> would be “erotic clam” 03:31 < yujie> Oyster with a Penis, that’d be a great band name! 03:31 <@nitro2k01> The “erotic clam down kidder” 03:31 < xulthis> hahaha 03:31 < xulthis> clamdownkidder? it’s catchy. i like 03:31 < yujie> nitro2k01: you’re just full of cdk jokes aren’t you? 03:32 < yujie> 03:32 < xulthis> he’s been waiting for this opportunity yuj! 03:32 <@nitro2k01> yujie: cdk? 03:32 <@nitro2k01> Oh 03:32 < CalmDownKidder> When I start my next venture - chiptune themed fish restaurant, I will call it “ClamDown Kidder” 03:32 <@nitro2k01> First I thought you meant xkcd 03:32 < xulthis> oh man. next time you’re waiting for a table at red lobster 03:33 < xulthis> give them the name “clamdownkidder” 03:33 < CalmDownKidder> “Clam Down Kidder - serving you Fish… AND CHIPS”
