Believe it or not, this board was about 11"x11"!
Would you believe that our school got a SMD workstation about a month after the Imaginations competition? Just imagine how much smaller this board would have been otherwise!
Out of the tumbler and ready for polish!
This project was to prototype the BridgeBall system (large kinetic sculpture spanning the underbelly of the entire Bosphorus bridge). Although I was able to finish the HUGE PCB required to move and color 100+ orbs, the motor/wire-pulling portion of this project was not completed in time for the finalist presentation. The videos at the bottom of the page will give you a better idea of what we had envisioned for our BridgeBall prototype and Keşif experience as a whole.
