I’ve just finished writing up my first-attempt at converting the reed-switch signal from our exercise bike into MIDI. Makes for an interesting workout when you have to keep pedalling or the music grinds to a halt.

Nice – sounds like a great way to enhance a workout! More project info + source code available @ 55th Floatilla.
