Digital Wall Harp


[Alison Lewis] has posted this fantastic digital wall harp project at My Home 2.0. They built an infrared MIDI instrument into a wall, using a MidiTron and some IR sensors. It all connects to a computer running a MIDI sequencer via a MIDI to USB converter. The project was built for a family home. They wanted something musical that they could play as easily as waiving their hand. They got it! Simply run your hand under the sensors and play some music!

    Can somebody say over kill.. Don’t get me wrong a tracheotomy is very impressive but not for a marble stuck up the nose. Just kidding.. a good use of technology but an over kill for appliance and application….. in a nut shell.. neat
