The death of a furby... (pictures warning)

Post by daguuy » Sun Oct 08, 2006 6:09 pm

I was bored today and while doing... nothing, I spotted my old furby so I decided to kill it. But microwaving one has already been done and I could use the audio amp and maybe some other stuff so I took it apart. Sorry about the image quality, my camera sucks at close range stuff...

Here's the story with pictures!
---------

Staring into the face of evil
Image

To get to the screws, I had to cut off the fur
Image

Furby says "peekaboo!" Luckily that's the last thing he'll ever say :twisted:
Image

He's no longer a tiger furby... he's a stripper furby!
Image

Judging from this picture, I think it's safe to say that furbies are in fact killer robots in disguise
Image

I tried to get the other half of the shell off for 10 minutes. Then I found out I missed a screw...
Image

Here's the brain of the furby. I was dissapointed to find out that there was no gremlin controlling it from a captian control panel thingy
Image

Here's the guts
Image

It just kinda fell apart from there. Apparently everything is run by one little motor.
Image

There's some potentially useful stuff in them like an amp, speaker, motor, crappy motion detector, some leds, infrared led and detector, sound detector thingy, and transistors.

The End

Any qustions, comments, death threats, BS, etc...?

You...You monster! That was worse than Chechclear and Guinea Pig 2 combined.... :shock: . Lol, maybe it wasn't, but really did it want to die. Also, was anything in there worth of interest, such as OMG, SECRET NOAC :wink:

Some LEDs, a PIC, and a serial interface would make it into a nice servo puppet :P

He did better then let it go feral.

Sounds nice, but I didn't think those things were worth the money and really no offence but it was the dumbest electronic gadget fad ever.

I did the same thing like 3 years ago! But I drilled holes in the eyes and left the drill bits in them. :twisted: And then I made my other one into a puppet!

What you can make them say bad and naughty words? Or just have them act weird, start smoking and then die?
