“We ran for varying amounts of time for three afternoons and nights. reactions ranged from “uhh… wow” to “that was FUCKING AWESOME how can i give you money to support this project?” It was awesome enough to enlist our neighboring camps to spend hours carting water up the hill just so we could get running sooner. ” — Seth Hardy (project leader/genius artist)

Cubitron for Mooseman

Christine Irving is looking for volunteers and a lead for “Cubitron” for Mooseman

Build will be happening at Site 3, and if we make this happen, we can keep this awesome structure on permanent display!

Similar : Burning Man 2009 – Cubitron

Work Required to Make Cubitron Happen:

  • IMPORTANT MUST: One project task master driver who will own all the get ‘R’ dun activities including whipping :)
  • One Weekend Day or 2 week nights of 5 – 7 consistent people to do wiring of all the LEDs to the main controller board (this will not take long if a group of people sit down and just do it assembly line for 6 hours (there are only 64 to do)
  • 1 – 2 people to drill 80 ping pong balls (extras are always required as we will fuck up balls)
  • 2 people to make sure the wiring is numbered and create the structure needed to hang the balls
  • 4 people (can be people from drilling group or structure group) to assemble the balls in the right order within the cube structure
  • Test it with the controller: Already pre-programed and ready to go
  • Set it up at Mooseman and enjoy the Toronto-made Cubitron

Please email me by Friday July 12th if you are interested: “christine.irving” at gmail

We have new tools!

Site 3 has just acquired a new milling machine and lathe. Can’t wait to get my hands on them and start machining my dreams into reality. We now have TWO lathes, a laser cutter, several drill presses, a table saw, mitre saw, routers, a horizontal bandsaw, more soldering irons than you can shake a stick at, and a million hand/power tools, but I’m most excited about the mill. Check it out:

Awesome, right? How much do you want to be a Site 3 member now? So much.

thanks for the photos, Kyle!
