Solenoid City: Sun 28th June 2015

We had some more fun with solenoids this week – Tim brought the prototype for the next iteration of the automated glockenspiel which you can see in the video and image below. It’s going to be ready for the Turbine Festival at the Tate, so watch this space:

Saif’s been working on a much more solid construction for The Frame preamp. The first prototype is here:
