Arduino Based Interactive Sculpture #ArtTuesday

AuraFlora (AFB1) is an Arduino based interactive sculpture….

AuraFlora Beta 1 is a scaled down version of AuraFlora for development purposes. The micro controller is an Arduino Uno R3. The purpose of this device is to be a first prototype for AuraFlora, and provide a platform on which to develop code. AF B1 has 2 inputs and 3 outputs. Inputs are in the form of a PIR motion detector and a Pingback distance sensor. If a servo was added to the ping back sensor, the machine may be able to “see” by using SAR – synthetic aperture radar. The outputs are in the form of audio (currently mono tones – working on including stereo wav’s, the SD shield is currently nonfunctioning), lights in the form of 2 banks of LED’s, and vibration created by a 1.5V motor, and amplified by the steel springs holding the mirrors (flower petals). The code behavior does currently allow you to advance through 3 stages to receive a reward, but the reward is a melody being played, not cash. Within the stages the machine reacts to distance and motion in an attempt to be enticing. There is still a lot of room for improvement.

Every Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
