Solar wind flares

This is a collaborative project with Zach Corse, Adam Fischer, Andre Marquetti, Sean Pace, and Steven Trimmer.

Solar wind flares uses a mirrored acrylic tank to visualize the data collected by a NASA solar wind probe. The data is presented as waves via the coupling of a speaker along with corner actuators creating other types of waves, as a way of visualizing the solar wind data.

Here is an early prototype being shown at Maker Faire Bay Area 2015.
