I’m making a wooden frame to house and protect an LCD computer monitor, so that it can be hung on a wall at the museum. The monitor will display the ferrous wheel program, hopefully helping guests to understand the relationship between magnets and sound. The idea is that if you don’t understand how the piece works, you can look at the display and see what the vision system is doing.
At any rate, I got to play with some scrap wood and power tools, so I am satisfied. I’ll post an update after the frame is painted, the monitor is mounted, and the whole thing is hung on the wall. If you want to build your own; here are the plans!
