Final Prototypes + Tests / by Ben Lepley

 

Testing the final fan characteristics, pillow shape and size, pillow connection details, LED’s. Pillows and electronics have been sent off for fabrication. We should receive these components by Monday and/or Tuesday. Sadly we were not able to find a suitable fan that could be run in both directions, so we will only have inflation (with at 12v 1a fan), unless we can find a reasonable way to rig up two fans in the pillow. Tests so far indicate that two fans is too much weight.

Structure elements are purchased and on site. Still need to figure out the carriage design. Will start using the controller prototype to start testing the software this weekend. Final installation fast approaching!
