Wood Wave

March 25, 2010

This project uses strips of wood strings and motors. The motors pull the string that is attached to the wood strips which in-turn pull the wood strips that make them curl to a wave like shape. All the wood strips move randomly and separate from each other.

My first goal is to build the hub for the motor that pulls the string.

I also need to build a prototype that will hold one strip of wood with string hub and motor. For this I need to find the correct material for the wood and string. I also need to build the piece that the string goes through which I think I will make out of metal.
