UPDATE: 2 videos added after the jump.

Stephen Hobley managed to use synthesizer software to interact with some lasers to make what he calls the laser harp. It looks like the number of notes is probably limited.

The harp is connected to the impOSCar VSTi software synthesizer, the TAOS sensor array sits on the floor in it’s own stand. The array above the harp is just made up of fs mirrors for added p’zazz.

I have no idea what that means, but maybe you do. I don’t know what to say other than “this is really sweet,” so I’m just going to say it. This is really sweet. Much cooler than the last time I played with lasers. I tried to make the burning laser flashlight mod, but ended up setting my roommates room on fire. I’m not dumb enough to play with burning lasers in my own room.

Want to know how it works and how it was built? Check out the explanation video after the jump as well as another performance video.
