3-Story Paint Pendulum at Make: Day

Make: television is super excited about a project coming to Make: Day this weekend. The guys from a local DIY group, Studio Bricolage, sent us this picture of their progress so far. They start by affixing a cable to a balcony ledge which they’ll drop down three stories to the bottom floor. Once it’s secure, they’ll tie a 10-pound bowling ball with 4 RC-controlled paint nozzles mounted to it. A huge piece of paper will sit on the floor (with a tarp under it, of course) and they’ll fling the bowling ball around and hand over the controls to the crowd to let them squirt the paint at their will.

The bonus feature? A remote camera that’ll broadcast the signal to a nearby TV screen.

For those who can’t be there, we’ll have pictures, we promise!

Make: Day is this Saturday, March 14th from 10am -3pm at the Science Museum of Minnesota!
