Chris Gregg (Tufts University Computer Science Department) converted a 1960s Smith Corona Sterling Automatic 12 typewriter into a printer using solenoids, Arduino, and code.
Designed by Masters students at the École de Communication Visuelle Aquitaine (France), InternTrip is a board game prototype running on Blend Micro (basically an integrated Arduino board with BLE produced by RedBear Lab). The game wants to recreate the experience of internship in a communication agency.
During his Fortnight internship, Ethan Frier designed and crafted IDEOgraph – a machine that captures the energy and flow of IDEO Chicago physical office space. The device is basically a record player made by:

VIWO game box is a special toy conceived to stimulate all children senses. In order to achieve its goal, the device simply merges together the interactive capabilities of Arduino, conductive ink, wood, sounds and illustrations.
VIWO was realised by Tessa Donati realised as part of her diploma project in media and interaction design at écal.
Moon Phases is an interactive device – created by Yingjie Bei and Yifan Hu – that shows the moon phase for a given date as per user input. The device relies on Processing and Arduino to calculate the moon phase and then moving servo motors to posit the light accordingly. From the official project page:
The idea started from my very first processing sketch which is a 2D drawing for moon phases. From there, I started to expand and approach it from different perspective. The moon phases machine is the ultimate work through out the whole journey. It allows the audience to experience the moon phases’ changing in a tangible and poetic way. At the same time, it is also an educational piecing to learn about not only the moon phases from the past but also for the future.
On Yingjie Bei personal blog you can find more details on the project – including the original sketches and researches.
From the project page: “Light, as we usually see it, is an element that lacks mass, to treat it under the laws of gravity is somehow magical. The laws that describe the behaviour of light are hardly understandable because it neither behaves as body or as a wave. As Einstein wrote concerning the wave-particle duality: “We have two contradictory pictures of reality; separately neither of them fully explains the phenomena of light, but together they do”. In this project, we have built a computer simulator that reduces this extraordinary phenomenon to the simple classical mechanical laws”.
String Fountain is a kinetic sculpture realised by Paolo Salvagione at Pier 9. The installation relies upon a propulsion motor to move string in the air. An Arduino board connects a motor to a computer to control up to 6 strings moving simultaneously. The 3D printing along with the assembly instructions are available on Instructables.com.
