YAY! super thanks to matt and mark I got this motion sensor activating a muscle wire. My partner and I are trying to make a wall surface that sort of gently winks and opens (maybe a bit like anemones) from the great sewing notion called horsehair (that’s not horsehair) but a mesh with unbonded intersections so it deforms in super cool ways (an array of pockets a bit like this)
but mostly i’m supremely excited that i made albeit simple electronics and programming work at the same time and eventually it’s going to be pretty! suggestions if you see something funny are welcome.
