“5AM is a very romantic track,” Mattos told Dezeen. “We couldn’t stop associating it with an amazing sunrise, the movement of the stars and all the planetary motion.”
The duo used all the fluids they could find in their homes and experimented with mixing them together to form the desired densities, shapes and patterns.
“We went back to study basic science and interactions between different fluids, densities and compositions,” said Mattos. “We used a lot of different stuff – so many trials that we lost count. Of course we used water, milk, food colouring, different oils. We basically took everything liquid that we had at our places, including a fancy eye make-up removal.”
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
