Cool retro interfaces

without comments

A very interesting post on retro thing : The optical audio-tapes on the pallophotophone, how would they work? Perhaps a system reminiscent of the optigan organ? I tried to make a similar system once, using a printed disc on a disk-drive motor. Unfortunately my pickup (a photodiode) only picked up 50Hz noise.. (okay, I was 12)… It took me some years to realize that I was listening to my desk lamp instead of the optical disk.. oh well…
