Laser Harp Exhibition by Hands On!

Laser Harp

Move your fingers through space and create a lush melody? It's possible when you're playing a harp strung with laser beams.

The Laser Harp provides an elegant encounter between science and music in an unusual and creative real world application. The instrument creates music when visitors' hands play beams of light instead of traditional harp strings. A rich variety of performance-quality tones emanates from an external speaker as the lasers are triggered by the visitors' movements. By pressing a button on the harp's throat, visitors can select different sound sets from which to create their own musical compositions.
