Students at the University of Oslo have published a great ferrofluid display project they have created and publish to the “Applied Procrastination” Youtube channel, demonstrating a unique control over the ferrofluid liquid using an array of electromagnets. Watch the the video below to learn more about the unique ferrofluid display.
Using an Arduino Mega development board the display takes the form of a display with 252-pixels and has been named “Fetch”
“We have designed and built a massive ferrofluid-display with electromagnetic “pixels”. On Applied Procrastination we will share all the details of this project and hopefully inspire you to make something similar – or follow your own dream projects. This video marks the beginning of our Youtube-adventure, and is based on clips filmed before we decided to document our project with videos. Future videos will hopefully contain more visually pleasing footage and a generally higher production quality.”
