    Laying down the body of the device.. from YouTube This may look like the demise of the device, but it was just the beginning of the install at the museum. When you have a vision this large, it takes large equipment to get it moved. The Body had to be laid on its side in […]

    Team members and sponsors needed. Join the Infernal Crew!

    We have 24 days to go before our set up for Artprize at the Gerald R Ford Museum, and we have a lot of work  to do. Just how big this project is, from the wind collector built by Todd Cahill, to the structure being built in Kokomo Indiana by David Braun of Cogbots, to […]

  • News, Helpers Wanted, Sponsorships available

    We’re back from our guest showing at this year’s Maker Faire Detroit, and it was a blast, of heat and relentless Sun… but we also had a blast there.

  • New Shirt Design

    New Shirt Design

    Well, actually it is an improvement and upgrade on the previously proposed tee shirt design.

    Myke Amend talks About The Device

    Myke put together this video last night for our kickstarter page, it explains the project, and how we’re going about this. He also does a (somewhat clumsy) demonstration of the device… due to how incredibly directional a blow-dryer is as source of wind. He manages to successfully target the device and pull it together in […]

    Gaining Steam

    Our Kickstarter has started to pick up in activity over the past few days, and though we’re at about 2% with 40 out of 45 days to go, the chart is looking rather parabolic in its beginnings which has us feeling pretty optimistic about the monumental undertaking ahead of us.
