Stephen Hobley is at it again. His laser harp was cool enough to win second place in our project contest a few months back, and since then he’s managed to make it even cooler. Using a Wiimote to accurately track the positions at which the beams are interrupted, he added some very clean and precise pitch control to the already impressive instrument. Watch the video. After about a minute of demonstration, he gives a quick explanation of how the modification works, so be sure to watch the whole video.
He started a thread about this in our forums, so head on over there to give him props, ask questions, etc:
Laser Harp Mk III
