Return of the floppies: The floppy drives are back with multiplied force. Floppy drives,hard disk and optical scanners make music.
How does it work? The principle is simple. Every device with an electric motor is able to generate a sound.The sound generated by a motor depends on driving speed. The higher the frequency, the greater the pitch. Hard disks use a magnet and a coil to tilt the head. The hardware is controlled with microcontrollers (ATMega16, Arduino Uno) that receives data from PC that runs Python application.
