Here's a new project I just finished - Optic Flow. It's a functional light sculpture that changes shape, as well as color. At the heart of Optic Flow is an Arduino Uno, with custom-made electronics enabling the light sculpture to change the way it looks. Ten individual BlinkM LED light pendants are synchronized to make unique light patterns, and custom-built winches raise and lower the lights creating unique shapes that are coordinated with changing colors.http://dhenshaw.com/opticflow/
Coincidentally (!) it has just been selected as one of the finalist contenders in Engadget’s “Insert Coin” awards. This is a competition to find the most promising crowd-funded hardware of the year. If I’m voted into the top 10, I’ll go to New York to present on stage and have a chance at winning seed funding.
I'd be delighted if you like the idea of Optic Flow and put in a vote for me! Vote here: http://insertcoin2.engadget.com
