This is our scaled up wave-pendulum machine which is a collaboration between the UNC Departments of Mathematics and Physics & Astronomy. It is being unveiled Friday on the lawn in front of Phillips Hall as part of UNCs art festival, Arts Everywhere Day, which is happening this Friday, April 7 at UNC. The device was built by Phil Thompson in the machine shop, designed by UNC Math Grad student Francesca Bernardi and UNC Math Postdoc Dan Harris with funds from the Arts Everywhere program. Of course, we used Carolina Blue (WAY TO GO HEELS!). Come see it in action from Noon-Five PM this Friday!, and see if we can improve its tuning by then.
