LaserLoper by Gijs Gieskens

Laserloper eurorack module by Gijs Gieskens
As you all know, besides my interest in Doepfer modules i also love all other original eurorack concepts.
This one popped up on the web today, a creation of Gijs Gieskens (http://gieskes.nl) from the Netherlands.
(...also my home-country)

His latest module is a random noise generator, only a bit different than other ones.
This one is based on a small hourglass and laser technology.
As Gijs describes it on his website:
" The laser-beam seems to get bent by the falling sand (if it is sand) and shine onto the LDR (Light Dependent Resistor or Photoresistor), generating a random noise signal."
