Listen to a 'CD' made from fool's gold, powered by a Raspberry Pi

What’s music to some is noise to others. And that is maybe most obvious with Ra the newest piece from the creator of an eight-bit digital camera gun, ::vtol::. Because the artist writes within the demo’s Vimeo description, the challenge makes use of a laser to scan the irregularities on the floor of a pyrite disc. The artist, actual-identify Dimitry Morozov, says that this disc was a present from a mineral vendor and that all the tech current was centered across the concept of creating a laser sound reader that’d “have the ability to produce sound from numerous uneven surfaces.” Oh, and Morozov needed to make use of the naked minimal instruments to make it. What do these embrace? A Raspberry Pi, Arduino Nano, a do-it-yourself laser pickup, stepper motor, servo motor and a 3 watt mono sound system. If you wish to see it in motion, you are going to need to hit the Sound Museum in St. Petersburg.
