Big, badder and with 90% more Fire

It never sounds cool to try and set out to one up yourself. It sounds a little arrogant.

Simon V1 was a project that we built because we knew that we could do it and more importantly that we would likely get passed by the fire marshall at our local art events.

Once we made it, we had the bug and we needed to build something bigger and badder. We honed our skills on V1 so we needed to try some new things. The initial list included:

Acrylic touch buttons

wireless interaction between the console and the towers

more fire balls

4 towers instead of one

LOTS of LEDs

Origami metal panels

Better sound

More chip tunes

bigger fire balls

Propane Heater and trough reused from Simon V1

Connections:

power cables, propane lines

In figuring out what we wanted to do, we also realized that we needed to bring in more help. As part of this build we have brought in several new people: Andrea Pollitt, Shane Iler, Allen Hudson, Chris Galvin and Richie Meyer. Each bring their set of skills to the project. 

Please check back as we will have more updates to come….
