Magic toys for grown-ups: a personal and emotional learning process in making
Franz is a wall mounted bumblebee and my first design of making toys for grown-ups who dream of having ‘wunderkammers’, and my final project for Fabacademy 2015. For my final project I had to include a number of techniques into one integrated project. I decided to indulge in my private obsession with movement machines (they range from dancing bodies, to augmented reality performances, to mechanical choreographies like Franz).
Techniques and Materials:
3D printed ABS (Rhino), Lasercut acrylic (lllustrator, Inkscape), Lasercut wood and acrylic. Electronics from scratch: Attiny84, unipolar stepper motor, microphone, bulbs (Eagle, Arduino, Fabmodules).
Made at: Fablab Amsterdam
