With the leadership of David Tyler, StudentRND built the Robotic Pipe Organ in 2011, the first ever PVC robotic pipe organ ever to be made. We wanted the internet to be able to watch and play the pipe organ live, online, and here it is! We’re still working out some kinks. The sound in the background is our CNC router.
Try it now! Upload a MIDI file below, and watch the pipe organ play live on Justin.TV.
