441 Perfectly Sphere Water Droplets Aligned to a Grid

Davide GombaJune 10th, 2011

[pe lang] shares a system to spill water drops over a surface: many different uses from medical to artistic purposes.

achine that adds drops of water onto a special textured surface. Each drop forms into an almost perfect sphere through the surface tension of the water and the omniphopic Material. The electronically controlled pipette wanders through a square grid of 21 x 21 drops to form a micro-matrix and returns to the beginning. After approximately 300 minutes, and when thewater drops have evaporated, the same process starts again.

    Wonderful artistic and practical use of materials science and an MCU. Now let’s get your invention into a zero-G environment and make, easily, lots of perface spheres. Lots of need for those. If only simply for ball bearings! Beautiful application!

    Wow, perfect! And where is the connection with Arduino?
