What will you get: 175 GEOs, enough to build two domes (a 2v and a 1v).
If you're curious about the 'tech' side of GEO, click the picture below.
You will get them in an envelope, like a letter.

How to build a geodesic hub using GEO:
It's just a piece of plastic! Is it strong enough?
A simple dome can be built in under a minute ... with a little magic
In a slightly longer version, my 7 years old friend Mihnea is building his own: https://youtu.be/VhXecYuJeiU
As you can see, building a geo dome is really not rocket science! The ones in this project were the first ones for me, so I needed some guidance. I found it
and here: http://www.desertdomes.com/domecalc.html , but I made a lot of mistakes on the way.
So I put together some step by step instructions for you. If you're curious you can "save this image" and enlarge it, but you'll get one large print in the package anyway.
Materials you can use:
1in. rods 25mm
2in. branches 50mm
"Round washer" or "truss" screws.
SO WHAT WILL YOU BUILD, KEOPS? You might have to wait for a few seconds for this gif to start...
Geo domes, obviously...
But how about a mini greenhouse or a folding chicken run ???
This one was not build by me, but gives you a good idea about what can you do with GEO ... except the connectors, of course. GEO looks better :)
Or a shelve that would stand the pitbull test
THANK YOU everybody for taking time with my project!
Can't wait to see what will you build.
Risks and challenges
I managed to secure a reliable source of material and a small local company agreed to laser cut the GEOs for us at a fair price.
So, not too many bad surprises to be expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
