3 Axes = 3 Part Harmony

A CNC machine makes sweet, sweet music. It is playing the theme tune from MacGyver by varying the speed of the motors that control it’s position. I have seen this done with printers and floppy disks before, but never with a milling machine.

Really Old School

Star Wars Floppy

This is a popular trick on machines with loud floppies (the C64 did a lot of this)…

    That’s a great one, too… I was looking for stuff with motors, though, particularly. I once watched a 1541 C64 floppy drive play the Star-Spangled Banner. It was impressive and annoying at once.
