Love Machine: Prototype

The inspiration for my project is the movie Lady and the Tramp–specifically the part where the two dogs are eating the same spaghetti noodle.

Lady and the Tramp

I would like to re-create this moment with two pulse sensors and two servo motors. The motors will wind fake “spaghetti” at the rate of each user’s heartbeat. As the spools turn, it will draw the users closer and closer together.

I make a prototype of this with one pulse sensor while I wait for my second one to arrive in the mail. Currently, it draws my face into the plate of “spaghetti.” Pretty absurd.
