Let’s talk you feet with light! This project is light dynamic platforms that change of color depending on where you step in. It has been made for GICSA shopping center by KILO company (Christopher Galicia, Ricardo Gomez, Veronica Heredia) with the help of La Nave Makerspace.
Technologies usedWelding Traditional tools Metal working tools Electronics 3D printing Laser cutting
what’s the project story?
The Mexican mall was looking for a dynamic sculpture. They asked us to develop it as they were satisfied with the augmented reality project we made for them. A truck that looks like a train from the inside.
We choose to come to La Nave whose focus is to help makers. The place is accessible, on the same level and the neighborhood allows to do noise. This point was very important as we work on a metal structure.
how the workshop was useful to you?
The team is very patient with us. They took the time to explain to us how to use the laser cutter. One other reason we came to this workshop. We took a membership for one week because we didn’t need more time for the project.
what’s the project’s greatest success so far?
We develop an expertise in circuit board making. Also, we are very proud to have built an hexagonal dynamic platform. It was a big challenge both to assemble and to forge.
What’s your greatest failure(s) & lesson(s) so far?
We made assembling mistakes when we created circuits with electric current and LEDs. We have learned and maker things different with this project.
What’s your vision for the project & next steps?
We will share the project in open source via YouTube.com and Instructables.com
