2pir run at 4th of Juplaya

4th of Juplaya - 2pir and flags from Ed Hunsinger on Vimeo.
As usual, we've been working on improving 2pir. A while back Ian and Nicole came up with the idea of taking it out to the playa to run for the 4th of July, which provided an excellent opportunity to fix up some lingering issues. There was some last minute scrambling to get things in working order, but we managed to haul it out to the Black Rock Desert. On Friday, we set everything up and started to test, but the new ignition system wasn't working as expected. We downgraded to super-janky igniters (i.e. wicks soaked in lamp oil.) They weren't nearly as pretty as the nichrome wire, but they worked for a couple of hours as we played late into the night. Saturday was much more successful. We reverted to a refined version of our igniters from the Maker Faire, which ended up being the best ignition system so far for 2pir. We invited several people to spin fire, flags, or swing whatever they wanted around as we pumped music out of our sound system. Those who chose to jump on the platform and perform had a blast, and were quite entertaining for everyone standing around the perimeter. Evan took some great pictures Ed got a couple of videos _IGP3224.JPG
