NESbyt is a circuit bent NES game console I bent way back in 1999.
It has a few glitch switches and an audio input that controls some aspect of glitchiness.
It is pretty primitive compared to what benders are doing with NESes now, but I had only an afternoon to bend it, and at that time I had just been bending for a few years. As far as I can determine, this may be one of the earliest (intentionally) circuit bent NESes.
It can only play the original split game that came with the system, Mario Bros/Duckhunt, as the cartridge has been pulled apart and semi-permanently adhered to the cartridge slot. The game is still fully playable, Mario as well as Duck hunt, but is a little difficult due to the glitchy blockage. The music you hear is triggering the smaller graphic glitchiness.
It was bent 02/1999 for Omnimedia vs BOLT, a classic video game themed audioVisual specatcular at Blasthaus in San Francisco. BOLT (Bureau Of Low Technology) was Blasthaus' in-house tech/projection/video game geeks and they covered the walls with their classic video game 16mm promo film projections mixed with projected NESbyt all to a soundscape provided by 9 sound artists who were assigned sounds and effects from classic video games to use as audio fodder.

I'm just unearthing the gadget now from a long interrment in my garage. It still works!
Music by People Like Us from the album "People Like Us Meet The Jet Black Hair People...In Concert!" strangely also from 1999. See what I did there?
