We have seen a few cool waterfall displays before but this 96 Solenoid Waterfall Display (Google translated) is the first total DIY one I have seen. There isn’t very much technical details available but from the short writeup there is enough information for inspiration. I can just imagine how much this display would have cost if the solenoids weren’t found at a scrap yard.

“Each of the 3 solenoid valve blocks has assembled a board with shift registers and MOSFET arrays to drive the solenoid valves. A master-AVR pushes the data via SPI to the shift register and thus controls the various valves. The patterns are stored on an EEPROM and can be changed via UART.”

    Cool Display!! I agree that could have gotten a bit pricey if they didn’t find the solenoids cheap. Those thing go for a pretty penny new. Guess it was worth it though!!

    BASTLI is a club of hobbyists who study at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, so funds are not a problem.
    Actually, they scavenged the solenoids from scrap (they were used at a rat farm before…)
    I have to join them tomorrow…
