Scale up your dragon costume with wings that extend, flap and retract

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — November 1st, 2021 This year for Halloween, Quint BUILDs wanted to make something special for his daughter’s costume. Quint’s idea was to design and fabricate a pair of mechatronic dragon wings that can mount to a user’s back and move in three different modes by utilizing a set of pneumatic air cylinders.  The prototype began…… Continue reading Scale up your dragon costume with wings that extend, flap and retract

PneuMat is an interactive shape-changing system to help ensure infants sleep safely

Reading Time: 2 minutes Arduino Team — June 3rd, 2021 Every parent knows that babies need to sleep in specific conditions. Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) is a very tragic possibility and a number of steps must be taken to prevent it, such as avoiding blankets that can restrict an infant’s breathing. But babies can also choke on milk…… Continue reading PneuMat is an interactive shape-changing system to help ensure infants sleep safely

AirTouch: Pneumatic sensing for 3D prints

Reading Time: < 1 minutes AirTouch: Pneumatic sensing for 3D prints Arduino Team — May 22nd, 2020 3D printing allows us to make a wide variety of shapes, but adding interactive features generally means somehow strapping various electronics to them. The AirTouch project, however, presents an alternative option by enabling a fabricated object to sense up to a dozen different touch…… Continue reading AirTouch: Pneumatic sensing for 3D prints
