A laser harp is an electronic musical user interface and laser lighting display. It projects several laser beams played by the musician by blocking them to produce sounds, visually reminiscent of a harp.

How do I connect my laser to my Arduino?

Now, take one jumper wire and connect GND on your Arduino to GND on the KY-008 laser module as indicated by the (-) sign. Then, connect a jumper wire from D10 (digital pin 10) on your Arduino to the signal pin on your laser module as indicated by the (S) sign. That will be it for the mounting of the circuit.

Are laser receivers universal?

Even when the beam is invisible to the eye, you can quickly and accurately locate laser signals with the AdirPro LD-8 Universal Rotary Laser Receiver Detector. The device is compatible with all red rotary lasers in any lighting condition, allowing for use both indoors or out.

How does a laser harp work on an Arduino?

In this particular laser harp MIDI signal is sent from the Arduino through MIDI interface to the laptop running MIDI software (I used MuLab, because it’s free and simple). The second USB A/B cable just powers up the Arduino (it is possible to use a 5V power supply or couple of batteries instead).

What kind of music can a laser harp make?

What kind of skills do you need for laser harp?

Laser Harp project is pretty ‘multidimensional’, because it involves different types of skills, such as wiring and soldering, drafting, woodworking, familiarity with Arduino and MIDI, and more.

Do you need a scanner for a laser harp?

This article describes a simpler harp I designed more recently, which uses inexpensive laser pointers and doesn’t need the scanner. The harp works as a MIDI controller, so it doesn’t make sound itself, but generates a stream of MIDI data to drive an audio synthesizer.
