Don’t go throwing out your microfiche machines just yet. At last month’s Maker Faire, Andrew (aka Pillowsopher) showed off his microfiche-to-MIDI machine. The microfiche machine takes light (in this case, from the screen of the microfiche reader) and converts it into MIDI signals that can then be sent to devices that take MIDI input, like synthesizers or computers. Andrew made the machine for a San Francisco band called Microfiche. Anyone want to go to their next show on June 6?
