For my Main Project in this class, I would like to incorporate water and electronics in some way. I have been thinking about using a pump to continuously and uniformly drip water on some lever or sensor. From the feedback of the sensor, a clock will tick, and an LCD screen can display the time. Or alternatively, water could be pumped into some kind of container at a steady rate and a pressure transducer could determine how much water is in the container, mapping the pressures to a 24 hour time. At this point, this is a really rough idea and I am open to pivoting or incorporating other features. Here are a couple images of how it could be made.
All in all, the main components will be water and electronics. With technology improving daily, most consumer electronics are water resistant or water proof to some degree. However, electronics + water still has this counter-intuitive sense about it. I think using this aesthetic could really grab peoples’ attention. I have yet to brainstorm some other ideas. Please let me know if you have any suggestions.
