Wooden Kinetic Wave Sculpture – With Boat! #ArtTuesday
Here is a lovely, calming kinetic sculpture that turns wood into water. Here’s more from Ross McSweeney
This is a Kinetic wave sculpture made from mostly all wood. Each wave is driven by a cam that moves the wave both horizontally and vertically. There are 3 different type of fish, most of which don’t actually jump out of the water, but I like the look of them. Originally it was going to run only off a motor, but I don’t like the noise so I made the motor box optional. As usual the gear template was created with Matthias Wandel’s excellent gear generator software.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
