    Our Experience. We have learned A LOT during this campaign. It's been our first, and I've made a conscious effort to document the whole journey along the way with pictures, videos, and short blog posts that highlight our progress from week to week. Once we see this project through to fruition, which will likely be during the summer after our first big exhibition (possibly at Maker Faire in San Mateo) I will release a complete PDF journal documenting our experience from concept to completion of Light Play, along with a video montage (as an .mp4). The video will have all the juicy imagery compiled of the army growing from our original six to the hundreds of robots dancing that you helped fund into existence. The PDF will also include our thoughts on everything we learned during this process, so we can share a little bit of our wisdom about going into production, doing your own PR, branding your product, and starting up an LLC (all things we're doing for the first time). This project has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life and I would love to share it with you. =]

    Robot Army T-shirt. Nothing shows your support for world domination quite like a Robot Army T-shirt. This stylish light grey logo on dark charcoal grey cotton is your minimalist, less-is-more way to show others that you're 'too hacker for your hacker pants'.

    The Swag Pack! Dig our sexy branding? I know, neon yellow is irresistible. If you aren't too keen on building your own robot but want to support our cause and help us make our robot army, for $45 you'll get a Robot Army T-shirt, an original art poster (depicting the vector art of me in my red robe leading my delta robots into battle), and a vinyl sticker.

    "Wooo! Mind controlled robot armies for the win! This has to exist!" This is my patron bracket. If you totally get what I'm hoping to do and understand my desire to control a massive collective of mechanical things which I've built- AND also have extra money to support crazy ambitious people like me.... I will create a special delta robot in my installation that has your name or handle etched on the base. I'll even make it stand out from the others somehow, so we'll need to talk about what that would entail one on one. This delta will be a permanent part of the installation, and if you happen to be in Vegas when we have our private reception, I'll buy you a drink in thanks for your support and generosity. In addition, you'll get a kit, signed artwork print, shirt, and sticker too (...of course).

    Rock Star Treatment. Party in Vegas with Sarah and Mark. If you can fly, boat, train, or goat to Las Vegas (where we reside) Mark and I will take you to SYN Shop, our lovely hackerspace, and give you a tour as well as walk you through the process of creating one of our delta robots from start to finish. This will include 3D printing all the parts in your presence in a filament color of your choice, and laser cutting the acrylic base with whatever you like etched into it (name, handle, face?). After your kit is manufactured from scratch, we'll take you to dinner someplace awesome for a proper adoption ceremony (we can discus the details in person). Then we’ll go for a nightcap on the strip somewhere decadent that you'll want to tell your friends about. I promise Mark and I aren't too freaky. ;) (Of course get in touch with us beforehand so we can pick a date that works for everyone)
