It’s a thing, a big shiny glowy rainy thing! More specifically it’s 8-bit style cloud made of semi-translucent plastic, floating ( held aloft by a variable reach forklift ) lighting, lightning, thundering and of course raining on parades all over the playa
Are you funded?
Initial development has been bootstrapped from sources internal to Ardent Heavy Industries.
However full scale deployment will require securing an initial round of funding.
What can it do?
- Circumnavigate the playa at 5mph
- Extend up to 45′ in the air,
- Mist on over heater burners
- Rain on Parades
- Flash lighting and clap thunder storms
- Offer local area wifi access
- Host areal performances
- Stream music
- Offer a very limited number of people breathtaking views!
How do I work it?
An IOS device app can connect via wifi to initiate color sequences, rain, misting and even lightning and thunder.
Is it safe?
Absolutely! All our Operators are trained and carry a current certification for Class 7 (rough terrain) forklift, in compliance with OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.178.
The platform itself will be built on an ANSI/ITSDF B56.6-2011-8.24 compliant personnel platform, secured to the forklift and and operated in compliance with that statute, including personnel platform operations as described in section 5.15.
