Three students at Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering decided to embark on a mission to combine Chemistry, Software, Mechanical and Electrical Design into a conglomeration of awesome in the form of a ferrofluid music visualizer. Ferrofluid is magnetically reactive fluid, so let's make it dance to music. Roughly speaking,

Object + Music = Win (Eq. 1-1)

For our project, we wanted a very specific value of win that followed the goals of:

Win = (Project being safe and not leaking)
+ (Device responding in tune and on time to music) (Eq 1-2)

Does it work? Our current project status can be found Here.
