Update: Here’s the video of a demo at Dorkbot at La Gaité Lyrique in Paris

Before I report more on this project with demos and videos, here are some pictures to illustrate the work currently in progress, thanks to lasercutting techniques in particular:
This prototype works, here’s a picture of the laser beam rotating:
And here’s a very short early video (no sound)
Beam Beats – revolving laser beam to detect beacons from cyrille martraire on Vimeo.
I’ve been working on the Arduino source code to add the ability to send MIDI clock in order to sync Beam Beats to other MIDI devices.
