    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 […]

  • New Shirt Design

    New Shirt Design

    Well, actually it is an improvement and upgrade on the previously proposed tee shirt design. Now that we’re ready to go to production on these, I started off doing some graphical cleanup and decided it would be cooler if the shirts were two sided and had fancier text on them.

    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 […]

  • The Dangerous Kitchen

    The Dangerous Kitchen
