Livewire – Chaos Computer


Mike Brown of Livewire Electronics was one of the first people I met in the modular community when I started some 8 years ago. The Chaos Computer was more of a myth than an actual module in the 5 or so years it took to develop. It would show up in various incarnations, growing in features and then disappear for years. Then Mike died.

When Steve Rightnour of Monorocket handed me the Chaos Computer this weekend, I was equal parts thrilled and saddened. Thrilled because of the obvious reasons of obtaining a module that you’ve heard, tested, and lusted after for several years but saddened because its another Livewire Electronics design that became realized, finalized and put into the “done” category in Mike’s legacy. This thing is in for a world of hurt, just as Mike would’ve wanted it to be.


Modular Wild made a few videos showcasing the random voltages, and audio rate clocking features of the Chaos Computer.
