Soft Systems at the AADRL

Theodore Spyropoulos and his team at the DRL is doing some incredible research on the potential of soft materiality and self-assembling systems:



Arduino Basics (Automated Inflation)

(The first foray into Arduino programming. Pretty much following built-in examples for driving DC motors and reading analog sensors (here a IR distance sensor). The fan here was nowhere near powerful enough to inflate even a small garbage bag, but I think the principle is useful, and hopefully this is the start of a series of experiments.

And a couple useful links for future development:
