From Hack-a-Day - Someone has programmed a CNC Router (a computerized woodworking machine) as a musical instrument, playing Jonathan Coulton's "Still Alive" using the various motor noises. In harmony, no less!

I remember when the computer guys in the computer area of the State Office Building in downtown Frankfort showed me how to use the stepping motors in the plotters to play music. Some of the programs would even draw images appropriate to the music.

This is totally awesome and has such a very high geek score, I nearly exploded with geeky happiness.

The description is awesome. Best line:
The router thinks it is just doing its job.

Thanks for sharing. I may have to steal it and repost on my LJ.
