BEHOLD! R-M-I's FloppyDrive-Quartet

Behold.. my floppydrive music-array!

This is basically 4 floppydrives hooked up to a programmable microcontroller, which in turn is hooked up to a computer runnin a piece of software that converts midi-music into frequencies\steps for the steppermotors in the floppydrives.. creating music.

Probably not for everyone, but I think it's cool

Figured the wife wouldn't like it to much if I rigged up some tesla-coils in the livingroom so I "settled" for some floppy-drives..

Will be expanding the array once I find more floppydrives with standard pinout..

There's a guy on youtube that has a setup with 8, it's pretty ridiculous and pretty awesome.

This is cool, but doesn't have the 'insanity' factor there yet
