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.
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.
