Yes, you read it right… Andrew Sink decided to turn his 3D printer into a 3D printer that plays MIDI tunes, specifically the Jurassic Park Theme.
How does it work? Well, according to Hackaday Andrew used a MIDI to G-CODE converter “specifically designed for making those steppers hum.”
The end result is what I’d call truly low-fi and ridiculously interesting. Not sure I can see these catching on in a studio near you or me soon… but if we continue to focus on ways of making musical instruments out of objects we don’t consider musical, the world might just keep on spinning.
