Cracklebox is a touch and pressure sensitive device that squeeks and makes noises when played with. The history of Cracklebox starts from the late-1960s, when Michel Waisvisz designed and built the very first Crackle circuit together with Geert Hamelberg. Today STEIM center still builds the Crackle boxes.
