Craft & Design Robotics

Alexader Gurko’s “Begging Bot” plays music just by synching up the sounds a floppy and hard drive makes when spinning their motors. After the song is done, the CD drives opens up and the bot asks for donations from the public. The sound is actually pretty interesting if you watch the above video.

    Anyone else play music on the 1541 floppy drive with their commodore 64 by banging the head into the mechanical stop?
