Linyl Records: Music and light combined to create nostalgic ambiance

Arduino Music

Linyl Records capture audio and light information together on a single disk. It uses an Arduino to read the RGB values on the disk, which it then reproduces in ambient lighting. [via walyou]

Linyl are colored discs created from old photos or any other means that has captured light on a paper, these are then placed under a transparent vinyl disc that has special groves like the old gramophone records, this particular combo is then placed on a special record player that is capable of playing light and creating an ambiance with a nostalgic feeling.

Update: The team behind Linyl records is Benoit Espinola, Ishac Bertran, Natalia Echevarria, Shruti Ramiah. Nice work, keep us updated on any new projects!

    …but it’s not capturing audio.

    Either way, it’s an awesome concept.

    This would be a good “remake” opportunity :) (maybe I’ll jump on that…time to learn Processing!!)

      Yes, it doesn’t capture the audio or light information itself, but the data is ‘captured’, or recorded, on a single disk. :)

      Yes, please make your own version….and don’t forget to send us a link!
