The wind harp is very different and somewhat unknown "instrument" to most people. A project that is flexible to what materials that can be found and made into something that is enjoyable to listen to. The last storm that sweep through the SF Bay Area provided a great deal of audio files for me to tinker with and place on my internet radio station. Most of the time the wind harp was really a rain harp!

Should I win the Laser Cutter, I will use it to continue my first passion, that is building Robots and Artbots. Perhaps I'll see you at this years Makers Faire and Robogames and be able to share my projects with you.

There is something really strange with the characters used in the URLs of the links used by Instructables. If you look at the character between "botronics" and "Universal" at my URL of my project in your browser (at the top), you will see a " - - -". I tried posting that link on suicidebots.com (a great robots blog) with a "copy and paste" in the comments section. It will look fine till the link gets posted. The "---" becomes a long dash, and becomes a sequence of characters "%E2%80%94" when the link is clicked on. Other forums had trouble with the " ! " character. So be careful when naming your project.
