As a mechanical engineering extern, I worked three other MIT ME students to storyboard and prototype new challenges for a spy-themed interactive show.
I helped develop an “exploding” card reader design and bookshelf safe. The “exploding” card reader utilized an air cylinder and pump.
I also developed a circuit model for pressure sensitive tiles using piezoelectric sensors.

Triggered bookshelf would sound buzzer and set off light when book was pulled out.
