tellartbells Happy Valentine's Day from Tellart's Love Song Machine

Adam Meyer from Tellart wrote in with what has to be the coolest Valentine Day’s project I’ve ever seen:

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Tellart is launching the Love Song Machine, a musical instrument controlled (by you) through the internet. Visitors to the website can select a song or compose their own, and press play to send the song to the instrument in our Providence office.

The bells are played by a series of solenoids, which are controlled by an Arduino micro-controller. The notes that you submit are processed on our web servers and then sent to the Arduino, while we load up live video and audio so that you can watch your song play. If there are users ahead of you in line, the queuing system will let you know how long you’ve got before you can watch your song.

The bell machine will only be available for a limited time, so start composing!

(If you’re in Providence this Wednesday, you can catch Tellart at this week’s Providence Geek Dinner. Details here.)

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.
