During the Architecture Association Visiting School workshop in Sao Paulo, Brazil, we had some time to play with Arduino. The outcome was Airnold, our floating buddy.
We got some propellers at a model shop called AeroBras, some helium balloons and a cheap remote controlled toy car for its motors. We put everything together and programmed five actions: go forward, backward, turn right, left, and stay. The next step is to make it wireless.
This project was done in collaboration with Bruna Keese, Carolina de Lacquila and Thiago Augustus.
