Post Burn Push!

Hi All!

We just came back from Burning Man. We can't let by the chance to say thank you to all our backers here at KS and other personal donations. Your presence was especially felt on those hot desert days trying to assemble the last bits and pieces of our lovely snake.

Early on we noticed how difficult the playa surface was going to be to navigate (for you who don't know, Burning Man is located on rough playa terrain that varies between hard and soft patches of sand).  You can't really model this thing in a lab, so we knew difficulties like this could potentially come up.

 As luck would have it, the cool cats at the Black Rock Roller Disco agreed to let us to take the snake over to a flat surface where Titanoboa felt at home.  The unveiling was a success, the proof of concept a reality, the audience in awe, and all in all everything went great.  We have a few (unedited) videos and pictures to show you which you can see here:

We learned a lot from this event and all we can say is that we're VERY excited for the continuation of the Titanoboa project. We need your help to reach the final goal, just 3 days away! With your help we'll be able to make the necessary changes to have Titanoboa easily roll on the playa next year. We have our minds flooding with ideas on how to make it bigger, stronger, better, basically the most badass snake out there.

Help us reach our goal with a post burn push!   Share this link with your friends.

We love you all!

      Could you please upload those videos without the pirated music, so we can actually watch them?
