Traditionally, prototyping electronic systems is complex and expensive. The Keystone Series aims to bridge the gap between engineers and professional-grade equipment by providing affordable devices which test, actuate, and provide necessary data collection, on a modular scale. Additionally, these easy-to-use devices are packaged with corresponding software and examples of use.

Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art
Spin Art: this 3'x3' exhibit was constructed from a bicycle (which can still be seen underneath). It takes advantage of the physics of rotation – the paint near the center moves very little and that near the edges is pushes away from the center. Different viscosities of paint move at different speeds. Visitors may either squirt paint prior to turning the crank (what used to be the bicycle pedal) to cause the painting platform to spin rapidly, or start the paper spinning and then add paint as it spins. When finished, squeeze the hand-brake to stop the spinning and see what paint and centripetal force has created.
