Troy and Logan worked late into the night trying to get the first pod prototype up. The idea was for them to be flexible and have lots of give, so that wind and dust storms simply make them bounce and jiggle a bit (I can't help but to think of the dancing mushrooms from Fantasia). Sadly, there were some structural issues and the original design was toooo wobbly. There was a fear of having to rework the whole pod design.

'Squished' but not dust-storm proof :-/
As happens so often in life, a 'mistake' lead to a much grander idea. Troy and Logan are now working on a structural and visual detail that is even more interesting than the original design. Check back soon for the new and improved pods!
Those who have been to Burning Man before know that an easy way to find out the what/when/where is by tuning into the pirate radio stations on the playa. A WONDERFUL gentleman named Dennis is making 'ads' for various projects for theses stations. Check out the our 'ad', its awesome! (At first it sounds like you are on the wrong link, but I promise it's the right file. Just keep listening!)
Thank you Dennis!!!!
Hello wonderful supporters! Our documenter Matt Crawford is busy editing away the footage he got from our 'Crane Day'. It'll be up on the front page ASAP!
Also, we are still looking for more original music to add to future videos. If you make beats we would love to hear from you!
We had a great day of building (and that Texas sun is training us for building in the desert! It was HOT). Heavy machinery is the best. We still have a lot more to do, but the progress is going strong. Check back soon, the first full sized test pod is almost done as too.
