With more time, we would have liked to have the DC motor being controlled via an Arduino to create a more "breathing" iron filling sculpture. Perhaps play with variations of size of the frame and images that can be created (instead of just a circle).
Also, perhaps the motion of falling up and down can leave traces on the image to show that you've had it fallen down a certain amount of time.
This project definitely was weird, but we felt like it was a novel idea that we both wanted to explore a bit. We initially had the idea of making someone from a picture, but this concept was an extension of that.
As a team, we both worked really well together.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
