An arduino equipped bar table
posted September 30 2010 20:48.03

mettapera build a small bar inside a table and in order to spice it up added a seven-band audio spectrum equalizer with both LCD screen and RGB leds and a smoke machine. All this is controlled by an Arduino and the bar is supported by a gas spring to help the lifting.
A neat small corner transforms in a sec to a mood changing place and the "Zorba the Greek" soundtrack helps the most. :)
Arduino code and more details can be found here.

toka15l is building an Arduino controlled automatic harmonica, even though the project is not completed yet and modifications needed in the programing and some noise dampening material in the motor case, if you listen close you can recognize the "Daisy Bell" tune played.
A melodic project we wait to hear it completed.

UW-Madison Powertrain Control Research Laboratory "Musical Dynamometer"
posted June 24 2010 20:48.22

UW-Madison Mechanical Engineering Professor John Moskwa and students in his Powertrain Control Research Laboratory focus on fundamental and applied research in vehicle engine and powertrain systems. While their research is all business, they've incorporated a bit of fun to demonstrate their dynamometer's capabilities: It can play "On, Wisconsin!" and a Bach Partita in E Major.
Who said fun and science don't go together? :)
