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!
