PCの冷却ファンを再利用して楽器化。ファンの後方にLEDを配置し、羽根の回転によって明滅する光をフォトダイオードで拾い、電気信号に変えることで音を鳴らす。羽根の回転が遅いと低音、速いと高音になるため、回転数を調整/操作することで音階をつくり出す。ファンを連結させて抱きかかえ、回る羽根による持続音=ドローンを奏でる。これを弾けば、あなたも架空の民族「ファンタール人」。PCファンで音楽を奏で、風と会話する!

Fantar is an instrument with PC cooling fans reincarnated.
A light pick-up catches flickering light from the spinning LED illuminated blade and turns it into electric signal. And produce sounds through a guitar amplifier.
If the blade rotation is slow, the sound will be low pitch, and if it is fast, the sound will be high pitch, so the musical scale is created by adjusting the speed of the rotations mechanically or manually.
If you play this, you also become a fictional ethnic people "Fantar" playing drone music with PC fans and talking to the wind!
