Lights and Music: The Digital Laser Harp

Laser Harp

“The laser harp is a musical instrument made of light”

You play the harp by breaking the laser beam with your hand, and you can even change the tone by sliding your hand up and down the beam. It took Steven Hobley 3 months to create his first laser harp and 3 days to create his latest version seen in the first few photos below. The parts for the laser harp cost between $400-500 – which included a Nintendo Wii Remote and an Arduino micro controller. These laser harps have made their way to the main stage with music performers like Little Boots and Jean-Michel Jarre.
