DIY Venus2000 for use with scripts

Hi all, I’m very interested in the Venus 2000, but not living the high enough life to be able to spring 1000 on the machine.

That said, I’ve found some rather interesting designs for orderings the parts and assembling one yourself, and was thinking that if I were to do so, I would want to hook it up to an arduino and have the speed controllable via bluetooth/usb to link it up to scripts. I’d expect I’d need to convert the scripts somehow, but really haven’t looked into it further.

Has anyone done anything similar? I followed the steps for making an OSR2, but ofc that held my hand and I didn’t have to do much of the thinking myself, I’m not very well versed in actually tinkering.
