Main Project Aspirations : Dynamic Sculpture or LED snowboard

For my main project, I am still sifting through a plethora of ideas, one of my main ideas is creating a dynamic sculpture of some sort. This inspiration is from sculptures I have seen that use things like wind for movement.  However, if I chose this option I would want to create something that uses motors and or strobe lights to give a different perspective on motion. Something like the sculpture shown below made out of wood would what I have in mind.

Also, I have in mind an LED system that can be added to my extra snowboard, that would change colors given different speeds. I have seen a lot of videos of people night riding with a light up snowboard, some of them have lights that change but a majority of them are static or only a handful of colors such as the one shown below. I think it would be cool to add the element of changing color based on speed and movement.

I will continue brainstorming as my project may change, but so far these are what I have in mind.

    Austin this board is such a cool idea and I really hope that it works out because I love boarding and would make one also.

    Hey Austin! I think both of these are really cool project ideas, but I especially LOVE the snowboard idea. I think it would be such an interesting process to figure out how to change the colors of the lights based on the speed you are going, and it would be SO cool to actually use. How would the light connect to the board? Do you know if the weight of the materials would affect how well the snowboard works? I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    Hello Austin! I think this is a fantastic project as it allows for it to be used after this class has past. It’s something that you can enjoy as not just a project, but as a hobby.
