    well I’m happy to say this was a fun project and it’s SUPER responsive, water is extremely fluid.
    GREAT INSTRUCTIONS !!!! easy to follow and the videos were a great help, again, easy to follow.
    anyone can do this project !!!!!! THANK YOU.

    here is my setup, I like the KISS method, so I did a simple arm with a quick weld with a simple I bracket.

    here is my mount tot he projector, I made the mount originally out of acrylic, but I then converted it to a piece of aluminum. I printed out some 1 inch spacers and the end result was a projector that hovers above the box perfectly, no adjustments needed.

    here is my Kinect mount I made, it’s a simple I design

    here are some shots of the sand

    and to finish it off, I made an acrylic sign with a piece I had left over, thru a few LED’s in it.

    I am designing the button now, just waiting for it to come in the mail.
    but the controller is done, all I have to do is wire it up.
    It’s super simple, just break a keyboard apart and take out the controller board, then solder up a key you want to use to be your drain button

    Pretty slick! Care to elaborate? I’d love to set that up. I’m thinking of doing a “flood”, “Water”, “Lava”, and “Drain” button combo.

    sure, INTPTT and Jensen was able to help me out when I first tried this.
    you make 2 files.
    first make a shader file for each scenario, lava, water, snow, toxic waste, etc..
    second make a batch file that renames your shader file to the default water shader.
    then bind it to a hotkey within the Linux mint menu for keyboard shortcuts.

    Bill,

    Looks like my sandbox that I am working on is going to have a similar simplified arm for the Benq projector and kinect.

    However, my construction buddy and I are having trouble visualizing the projector mount. Do you happen to have any images showing off the mount that you made? Or perhaps a drawn design to help us copy what you have done.

    Thank you for all your help.

    If it is easier, you can email me: anthony.desain@acps.k12.va.us

    Thank you,

    TC Titan
