8-bit Violin

For the past four years, Ranjit Bhatnagar has done something awesome every February: He builds an instrument a day for the entire month. One of my favorites is this 8-bit violin. On his site, you’ll find some great videos of the violin being played by experts.

Ranjit has been doing this for a while, and the quality of his instruments has clearly improved over the past four years. Part of this is due to his use of more sophisticated tools, such as the laser cutter used to make the violin. Nonetheless, some of his early low-tech efforts such as his Walnut Whistle, are quite charming.

I aspire to be as mechanically productive, one day.
