Pyroboard

Last updated: 3/5/2019

Description

We make a 2-dimensional Ruben’s tube that utilizes pressure waves to manipulate fire into different patterns based on musical sound waves. In other words, we make fire dance to music.

Meeting Time

Right now we meet in Exceed (Keller 2-160) at 2:30 p.m. on Thursdays, but that may change next semester depending on our members’ class schedule.

General Focus Areas

Design (designing and prototyping the board), chemistry (what chemicals make what colors) physics (for looking at sound waves), metal working (building the boards), music enthusiasts ( to help figure out what types of music make the best patterns) people who think fire is cool or like to build stuff
