A little Scanner Music?

I guess this scores highly in the "Cool but Useless" catergory! If you have a HP 3C or 4C scanner, you can make it play music.

The scan head has a variable speed stepper motor, and it can be moved at different speeds, producing different tones.

To see and hear a video of a HP scanner playing "Fur Elise", click HERE!

Could it be thast some folks have WAY too much time on their hands?

Hat tip to Slashdot and for the story.

Link to scanner muzik is T/U.

Looks like an over-bandwidth issue.
