The Printer of Doom

If I'm honest I was expecting something to do with a 3D printer, but this is pretty darn cool as well. Kudos to the person who pulled this off. :)

Bi-directional printing FTW!

@Obsidian - here's something to do with a 3D printer (custom paint job not included).

The tune's played on the printhead's 24 solenoids with the printer probably operating in bi-directional graphics mode, so it's feeding raw data to the printhead instead of bitmap fonts. It's possibly based on the Dot Matrix Synth from 2003, but really can't say when all we see is the printer.

Be careful that printer doesn't print out any cacodemons.

How do you get the printer to do music like that anyway?
