+ ambient

        The ambient box moves in response to sound and light levels in its environment. A microphone attached to the front of the circular panel constantly monitors the sound level in the room and moves a motor attached to this panel quickly if there is a sudden change in the volume and slowly if the change is slight. The yellow rectangles on the bottom box are each attached to solar motors which release their energy as circular motion.

  There are two independent sections, the top responds to sound and the bottom responds to light.
  A microphone is attached to the center of the white plastic panel. The panel moves in and out in response to the sound in the environment.
  Solar panels attached to each side of the box provide energy to each rectangle independently. If there is more light on one side, the motor will turn more frequently.
