Once again, the task was to give old spruce slats and board materials a new function within a few hours. After a few compressor-powered hovercraft attempts, the idea was born to convert an old thermoforming machine into a small air hockey table.
Following the approach of trial and error aerodynamics, a ventilation fan for workshop rooms has been incorporated into the frame and provides the upper chamber with sufficient air flow. A colored acrylic puck is moved back and forth by two 3d printed sticks made of PLA.
This project was co-created with Selma Mühlbauer and Valentina Sturn.
