Form and function influence each other

A project log for Wireless Arduino-powered Vibrator

Building your own silicone molded vibrator. Use a 3d printer for printing the form. Drive the vibration motor with a Arduino board.

I am using for some month an unchanged Arduino scriped called "p5". You can download the script from codebender.

The script has the basic functions:


The form of the vibrator / dildo suggests that control of the motor will be done by horinzontal in - out - in - out motions (up and down arrows).

But by twisting the vibrator you get a great vibration motor boost! This wasn't intended as the form of older cases were not round. But it's a great feature.

This example show how form and function can influence each other (wanted or unwanted). For a maker it's not easy to understand the complex relationship between form and function.
