Design a Microchip

07Jul08

/group-project at IAAC
Our group was assigned rotational input and light output for our electronics assignment. We got off to a great start with the milling, and chip making.
We decided for the panel that it would be much nicer if the actual object that you controlled was the object that changed, so we devised a series of 8×8x8cm cubes that would contain the electronic components. These 9 cubes were mounted on a large base board, allowing the sensor to be fixed and the cubes to rotate. Many long discussion were fought about the layout of the cubes, but ultimately we decided that a fairly regular pattern would suit the project better.
The panel its self allows you to vary the rate at which the light blinks by the amount that you rotate the cubes.
