We study the transport of spin within a weakly-interacting gas of $^{87}$Rb atoms above quantum degeneracy. Spin transport can be modified by tuning coherent spin-rotating interactions with a small effective magnetic field that varies the local Larmor precession. Previously, we have shown that specific linear effective magnetic fields stabilize spin domains [1]. Further manipulation of the effective magnetic field is achieved by utilizing a digital micromirror device. This finer control of the effective magnetic field can lead to longer lived stable spin domains, multiple stable spin domains, and dynamic control of the orientation of a spin domain. We present the experimental details of including a digital micromirror device to our system and our progress on further modifying spin transport.
