Fluid Fantasy Brings The Galaxy In Your Sink

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

 

[Kim Pimmel] – which you may remember from the LightDrive Project – made a nice animation made out on bubbles & ferrofluid liquid.

I combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.

Time-lapse sequences: Nikon D90, Nikkor 60mm macro lens and custom built intervalometer. 
Motion-control: Arduino driven scanner platform and mirror rigs
Score: Ableton Live

Interactive, Portable “Magic Mirror” Arduino Project

Monday, February 1st, 2010

Using an old suitcase, a laptop, X10 home automation parts and an Arduino set-up, this guy managed to build a fully-functional magic mirror suitcase.  Basically, it’s an interactive mirror which reacts to it’s environment using various sensors…BUT it can also be used to view stock updates, weather forecasts, and more!
