title: String Ray
aka: Standing wave device / quantum wave in a box

The string ray has two motors to drive the string, and their speed can be adjusted to produce different standing wave patterns.

    Would this work on the moon? (ie. with lower gravity?)
    What is the result of a higher tension in the string?
