MAKER FAIRE 'flocking blimp whales' - April 22-23, 2006 (ALAVs 1.0)
At the Maker Faire, the ALAVs (blimp whales) captivated the kids in away I could not have imagined. I had the opportunity to refine my shepardding skills over that weekend. Some of the more notable attention came from Dave Lowder at Beyond Productions. They spent about 3 hours filming with the ALAVs for a science & technology program called Beyond Tomorrow that airs on Discovery Network worldwide. I also was interviewed by Jay Leno's film crew for the Tonight Show. I was asked to sign a release from but was not told when the show might air. I will post updates as I find out more. Due to the constant flurry of activity, I really didn't have a chance to document all the fun. If you have any good photos and especially videos you would like to share, please get in touch!
