Elecanisms (n): electric mechanisms. synonym: mechatronic systems.
Our final project for Olin College's Elecanisms course is a 3D maze that allows you to maneuver a ball through obstacles on a pillar of air.
How our game works, where the idea came from, and other uses of the "Bernoulli Blower" effect.
A deep dive into the design of the mechanical, electrical, and firmware subsystems.
We've made our schematics, bill of materials, and other design resources available for anyone who wants to replicate our maze here.
