@General Desire: yeah, there wasn't a lot of space in that part of the lab where the printer was set up. Not ideal, but I think we made it work!
@kazpa: @OfRhythmAndMovement: @mb: fixed!
@jccarlton: yeah, way more possible than the ecat nonsense. but i'll believe in a practical implementation of small reactors when i see it! still, it's exciting!
@AlwaysBeClothing: thanks! i was running solo at NYCC so tried to think like joey as best as possible!
@Valcrow: your stuff is AWESOME. would love to chat with you sometime about your 3d prints, including that ducati bike!!!
@mb: even better: tesla!
Oh and Gina Torres from Firefly as Lewis gets my vote.
for Venkat, i would cast Dileep Rao (Inception, Avatar) or Bernard White (on the World Security Council in The Winter Soldier)
@StephenWestervelt: yep! part of the same set! @Scotsman_201: likely around $60 for the pair. @naclers: @kelhart: it is a high priority for will and i. we are honestly working on it, and trying to sort out things beyond our control. @Tion32: i'm confident that there will be some left over after the show for an online sale.
@HKZ: @mb: that's the cool thing with these iconic movies played back in low res. everyone latches on to a different part when it clicks as to what is being played!
@mb: that was my inside joke/easter egg! maybe it was too obvious...
@Stoobs: yep! and downloadable in PDF form here: http://www.propstore.com/content/liveauction/catalogue.pdf
@montycbh: ah, sorry i didn't loop back to that. the soldering wasn't too tricky, but the main switch connects to the board over six contacts, and one kept getting disconnected when i flipped the switch. that prevented it from reversing the motor when the finger flipped it the other way. got it solved in the end, though!
@Gblanchette: Hey Gil! Sorry about the shipping problem. If you flatten it, I think it'll look fine over time. But if you want a replacement, please email me at norman at tested dot com and I'll see what we can do. Thanks! -Norm
@Jerware: exactly. one of the reasons the oculus cinema's theaters are effective is because they simulate a very well-defined virtual space (ie. limited number of seats in a fixed theater design).
@kurosavvas: yep, that's using photogrammetry with smartphone or webcam images, processed on autodesk's servers. i've done that before and it's not as good as professional photogrammetry software. we did a story about it here:

@bvDrax: we may be doing a big meetup after the show, nearby the venue.
