Welcome to a new feature we're trying out over the next few weeks: the Manufacturing.net Video of the Day. With an increasing amount of good content being distributed through video, we feel that it's important to give space to the best ones we've found. And we all know that sometimes, it's good to just take a break and take in some cool sights or interesting ideas.
YouTube user bd594 recently uploaded a unique "cover" of The Animals' classic rendition of House of the Rising Sun. But this version doesn't use a single guitar or drum yet, and has no voacalist. All the parts are handled by old electronics equipment, from oscilloscopes to scanners.
According to the video's creator, the following "instruments" make up the piece:
- HP Scanjet 3P, Adaptec SCSI card and a computer powered by Ubuntu v9.10 OS as the vocals
- Atari 800XL with an EiCO Oscilloscope as the organ
- Texas instrument Ti-99/4A with a Tektronix Oscilloscope as the guitar
- Hard-drive powered by a PiC16F84A microcontroller as the bass drum and cymbal
