form study

In the Following images I have experimented different systems both for the structure and the pattern. I used the old material that I had but since it is much like foam it does not take the shape of the structure that I have created underneath. Then I used thin material such as paper towel and fabric that molds easily .

Finally I started to attach a flexible stripes such as plexiglass at the end of the fabrics . this allowed me to be more logical and organize in terms of form and structure. how ever the pattern is still general. I will put more pictures to show the openings and the system of the pattern .  From these experiments I changed my systems and structures in order to find the right solution  and I am still not sure which one is the best…..

The slide Show below shows the test with Distance sensors and Arduino.

I have done some test for the patterns , then used distance sensors with one continuous servo. very difficult to stop a continuous servo but not impossible. Since the servo tries to repeat the loop I made the servo to say in one position and repeat it, but since the position is very slow and minimal it is not visible. Next images shows adding more sensors and servos. By looking at the logic sheet you will realize that each servo is related to what servo and what it does…very complicated.:)

since some of the sensors had a shorter wire I had to solder  a longer wire  , very interesting …… I felt like a mechanical engineer 🙂
