We designed the Singing Lazy Susanhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc4PSgXDp64. Through the interaction with the Singing Lazy Susan, we found the eating patterns and behaviors unique to each person, which reflect our personalities and interests. The dining experience expands to a new domain.
Here we demonstrate how we made the singing Lazy Susan as an "introducing-yourself" tool or a "personality-reflection" interface at a dining table.
Step 1: Select materials
first of all, the board should be able to bear the weight of all the food and drinks, and should not be too heavy it self so that it can spin smoothly with food on it.
Second, to make later crafting easier, you should avoid choosing a material too hard to draw holes through.
We experimented with different materials and found that a 0.5 inch thick foam board is perfect for this!
Next step is to measure the size of nuts and find corresponding screws for later use.
Step 2: Lazy Susan in good shape
-the length of the thread depends on the size of the board depending on the size of the dining table you want.
-draw a circle with the pen+thread divider on the board
-cut the round board out of the foam carefully.
Step 3: Pierce Susan
make sure to draw the holes in the same size as you measured in step 1.
