Make arduino image scanner/sequencer
Here is a cool project for all of you Arduino lovers (not me, by the way). Even if you are not into Arduino or electronics per say, you might find this little thing interesting if you are into music or strange music instruments.
This here is actually a piece of hand-held hardware designed to create music by scanning a provided image or a drawing. The scanning sensors are LDRs (photo-resistors) and their values are read by Arduino with A/D channels. Those values are than converted to MIDI notes and music is born. This device can also be used as a scanner to scan images with very low resolution.
