This was certainly the summer of the inflatable. A few pics of our ill-fated entry into the 2009 DesCours Competition - but we aren’t bitter…Would have been constructed out of poly-ethelene with a sub-structure of fiberglass rods – similar to modern tent construction. The plan was to explore the use of arduino controllers to manipulate multi-colored led lights imbedded in the inflatable ‘units.’ Cheap – high impact – portable on a plane. Well – it was a great opportunity to explore Rhinos new kickass version of paneling tools.
