atOms

atOms is fragile kinetic structures. atOms is suspended in mid-air not with strings or wires, but with only air streams. Each balls is free to move in mid-air. Each balls also vibrates constantly like an atoms. Even in a tilted position, balls don`t fall as if they were joined together by a covalent bond. These phenomenon is based on Coanda effect and Magnus effect.

SYSTEM

atOms consists of 2 Arduino boards, motor control circuits, 16 servo motors and 8 fan motors. The angle of streams is controlled with servo motors. The height of each balls are adjusted with fan motors.
