Form Exploration: Rubber Band Mechanism
A project done in my sophomore year Products Mini. We were to first explore different interactions utilizing balsa wood and rubber bands. From there we were to create a foam form that would represent the physical form that the mechanism would take.
Final Form Model
Final form created from blue foam and covered with white paint. Rubber band mechanism is represented from stacks of styrene on top of each other.
Twist: Rubberband Mechanism Model
Final mechanism created from balsa wood and rubber bands. The motion I chose to convey was a twisting motion.
Rubber Band Hand Interaction
Foam Model Hand Interaction
Both forms are meant to convey the same motion and utilize the twisting rubber band mechanism.
