When a customer makes a purchase order, a script automatically triggers a tennis ball to be released down a track which ends with the ball ringing a gong.
The track starts with a servo motor which automatically releases a tennis ball when signalled by the computer.
The track runs along the divider behind four desks, with a bounce / jump at the middle.
The coat-hanger-wire track is bound to lasercut brackets with wire.
The track brackets are supported via wooden slats by brackets that slide onto the bars of the office dividers.
The office furniture (from the Herman Miller Resolve System) has bars along the tops of the separators.
The bar supports can be lifted out of slots on the posts.
The initial paper mock of the brackets to fit on the top rail. This was scanned, then traced in Adobe Illustrator, cut and test-fit.
After a revision to the rail bracket's fit, a full set of rail and track brackets were cut.
Initial installation of the rail brackets.
Thanks to Kate Peterson for help installing the track and inventing its path.
