A Steam-Powered Record Player
A interesting homemade device echoes influences of the steampunk genre.
Asciimation has unveiled an interesting musical concept–a steam-powered vinyl player that echoes influences of the steampunk genre. The creator explains:
The engine speed is controlled by a throttle being driven from a servo controlled by an Arduino. The RPMs are measured by a coil detecting the passing of six magnets in the edge of the platter and the approximate revs are displayed on an analogue meter.
