Contraption of the Day: Intel Music Machine
  • TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2012

  • Posted by: Joe Puglisi

Inspired by Animusic's digitally animated musical concerts (specifically the "Pipe Dream" one), Intel built a real-world version of the balls-hitting-things musical machine using 2,300 balls to reproduce 120 unique notes (in just 90 days!). They claim they're using "off-the-shelf" hardware running "existing software," which seems to suggest you too can own your own superfluous music machine with a little elbow grease and something like 160K. Neat!

We'll settle for watching the video, which is without a doubt entertaining. At least we know when the robots take over, we'll have some great concerts.
