Step 11: Where to go from here.
I was thinking about where the tornado machine should go from here. I have yet to design a tornado machine 2.0 but if I do I would like some of the following.
-RGB LEDs and a micro-controller to choose precise colors for every occasion.
-Larger components. Powerful, high speed motor and custom laser cut impeller.
-Better looking base/housing. Probably made from clear lexan. Because I am familiar with shaping and molding this material.
-Micro-controller programmed to vary the "weather". Could be set up to vary the speed of the motor quite easily by using a high power transistor and a bit of code.
These are just some of the improvements I thought of, let me know what you build or come up with.
