… plexiglass

The house made of plexiglass has a convex base.

The interaction is very simple. The houses rock just by touching. The second one waggles according to the movement of the first one.

ideal telecommunication


definitive models

We used scratched plexiglass to make the shape.

two breadboards, two arduinos, two servo motors, one accelerometer one battery

To make the houses stable we put a piece of heavy iron inside.
By waggling one house the second one rocked according to the movement of the first one. One house had an accelerometer. The second little house had two servo motors which moved a heavy piece of iron. Both of them had an arduino inside. The data transmission was made by wires. We powered the circuits with a 9 volts batteries.
