Week 3 – Keaney & Scotten

This week our project has taken a change in direction, we have moved away from using moisture as our input and instead we want to use temperature, however we may have to use light as this would be easier to control. Our output is going to consist of a motor blowing particles around a tube. If we can master the code in the next few weeks we will have four tubes that will be independently switched on and off depending on the temperature. However, if this cant be achieved then we will be working on a design for a single system whereby a fan attached to a motor will be blowing air into a closed environment and cause particles we place in said environment to float around, causing a kinetic output mimicking snow in a blizzard, and an aural output will be produced by the ‘snow’ pattering against the walls of the environment we fashion.
