Brian finished the 3D model this week, and based on the model, we ordered the final round of metal! We are going to be spending all next weekend grinding, and welding, and drilling. JKAT has been running all over town, looking for rope that is both black lit and not really expensive. Exciting times!
We set up the wormhole zip line at Critical Massive! It was a slow start as far as set up goes — we realized that not only was our zip line too weak (we got a backyard kit), the platform wasn’t high enough. So, we spent a whole additional day solving these problems. But, we got it all going, including the sound and lighting component, by Friday! The kids really loved it. There were a couple of girls in particular who were addicted, going over, and over, and over, and over….
It’s the beginning of July, and we are making great progress with the interactive zipline component of the Zymphonic Wormhole project as we gear up for Critical Massive. We’ve been making final design decisions, ordering materials, started making the base of the zipline, and started to program the interactive component. We have been working with Processing 2.0 to program the sound and responsive lighting.
