A device was designed and implemented to replicate spring buckling using a linearmotor. The device was designed using an oﬀ the shelf motor, microcontroller, DAQ,and force transducer. Once the device was put together a program was written inmatlab to control the motor. Tests were done to replicate a spring damper systemand once this system was realized, tests were done to replicate the Duﬃng oscillaterthat exhibits subcritical pitchfork bifurcation. The ﬁnished device can be used toinvestigate how vision and tactile integration play a role in dynamic manipulation.
