...to boldly go where no dice have gone before!

Hi there again with our second project!

You need something VERY special for your show room/ glas cabinet, player round, board game geeks?
Or a gift for someone, who is very special? Or for someone who already has everything?
Then you have to read on...

After seeing some videos from STRATOFLIGHTS like this or this (PLEASE WATCH THEM!) we talked about how cool it will be to do it also like them... but cooler! Also remembering Felix Baumgartners jump from October 2012 - so we began to plan...

It MUST be something with dice... a die in stratophere, more dice,
DICE IN SPACE!

So we contacted the guys from STRATOFLIGHTS.COM and planned and planned and planned, and this is the result:

We need YOU to send a LOT OF DICE (custom BOREALIS (c) dice 16 mm, powered by CHESSEX (TM) ) up to 35 km in the stratosphere!

 

custom DICE IN SPACE 16mm, limited!
custom DICE IN SPACE 16mm, limited!

These dice will be strictly limited to this project, not sold without flight, not sold after the project! see also update no. 3!

After funding this kickstarter project we will get all the stuff we need to send a probe head with lots of stuff (see below, incl. up to 250 DICE IN SPACE per flight) aided by a big weather balloon (filled with Helium) into the stratosphere!

Start(s) will be in fall/ winter on a big field near BONN, Germany. The Balloon will lift the probe head up to 35 km into the stratosphere, the balloon will explode (thin air there) and the probe head will come back to
earth with a parachute.
The flight will be about 2 - 2,5 h, the landing 1 - 1,5 h, total flight about 3 - 4 h.

In the probe head there are the DICE IN SPACE and lots of technical stuff (see below) to make pics, videos, graphical analysis of the flight and GPS tracker to find after the landing.

The probe head is an EPS foam box to protect our precious DICE IN SPACE and the electronics of the low temperatures and shocks at the impact.

In this probe head there will be:
At least one ActionCam with extra battery pack for a cool movie like in the examples above (please watch them!), a GPS tracker, a data logger for temperature, GPS data, air moisture and altitude!
AND ALSO UP TO 250 DICE IN SPACE!

There are a lot you can choose...
but please note: there is a weight limit for 250 DICE IN SPACE for each mission, so perhaps we have to start more than 1 balloon, so the whole project is limited to max 1000 DICE IN SPACE!

Risks and challenges

There is always potential challenges to every Kickstarter campaign.
Everything is ready to go, but there is always the possibility for manufacture problems, delivery delay, missing delivery etc.

VERY IMPORTANT:
We talked to the STRATOFLIGHT guys with the experience of over 100 flights, they said, every probe head was found in the past, but there is NO GUARANTEE to find the probe with the dice. In the worst case, all is lost!

But we are confident in our ability to get DICE IN SPACE to every single backer and we will do our best to keep to schedule.

Because... we have some more (dice) ideas for the future!

Thank you for checking out our project

Let them roll!
