This week we focused on mold design for the venus fly trap leaves and electronics. We printed out 2 different molds for the venus fly trap leaves that we will be casting next week. We also cast repeats of the actuators for them for additional testing.
Additionally, we weaved and embedded an electrode for the capacitive touch sensor through acetate and bonded that to the silicone flower we cast earlier.
This week we will be casting the leaves and embedded electrodes in them, bonding them to the actuator and working on motor electronics.
