Invention of a new Open Source mechanical musical instrument
Following the « DYI » trend, here comes a musical automaton created by [EricDuino]. This Arduino based autonomous robot is named « Line Follower Organ », « Orgue Suiveur de Ligne » in its maiden language.
What’s new with this instrument is that it moves along its partition in order to play it.
It’s still at a very early stage and it cannot play a full symphony or house music yet. Hopefully the Open Source community will soon make it play Electro Hop.
