April Maker Challenge 15/30: Electro-Mechanical Visualizer
An arduino-controlled visualizer -- responds to music by behaving in certain ways. Maybe motors could spin or gears would turn. I imagine this being wall-mounted, maybe steampunkish! It could take in the data via a microphone rather than a data connection, so it could also react to ambient noise. One potential problem -- can it really react fast enough to keep up with fast music, and does it matter?
