We, students of the School of Life Sciences, who are currently attending a course in medicinal micro system technics received the task to develop a game using micro fluidic technology.
After collecting a few different ideas for such a game we soon narrowed down to a micro fluidic labyrinth. Goal is to maneuver either a [...]
Well, well. Our first experiment with the labyrinth didn't quite work out as we thought. First of all the ball was rolling around without us pressing any liquid into the labyrinth.
When we actually did use the two injection needles nothing happened... The ball is just to heavy for this type of game.
The other thing was [...]
The other day we managed to create our first labyrinth with rapid prototyping. You can see the result on the photo below. You can also see the little ball we will be using for our experiment. Its the tip of a ball-pen!Read the story »
We have finally completed our prototype labyrinth on solid works.Read the story »
We had the grand idea of a microfluid labyrinth.
Two injection needles fill the labyrinth with fluid. A small plastic ball is inserted into
the labyrinth and is maneuvered through the passages. Pressure must be
applied to the two needles, for the ball to change its direction. Whoever finishes the labyrinth first, wins!
