The challenge, how does one present 50’s synchronized swimming, or water works like the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, without water. Pushing string with a motor is not a new idea. Adding servo motors and a microcontroller to create automated and interactive installation is what I was looking to do during my residency at Autodesk’s new facility on Pier 9.
This Instructable goes through the assembly of one of my 1/4 scale string fountains. The second image above is 6 string fountains arraigned in a circle moving string though the air.
