ITP Camp 2021

electronically actuated "trumpet" valves

hi, I attempted to learn to design and then servo-motor actuate some rotary trumpet valves - learning the various parts necessary for the production. I didn't quite get all the way there during my time at camp, but I did document some of my thoughts on the process w/ a 15 min video and was able to make something that played a song. see:

video doc - 15mins
