Non-profit startup Reallocate has launched an IndieGogo campaign to help finance their Burning Man contribution. Their project combines drones, 3-d scanning and printing, robotic manufacturing, and philanthropy. This story has already been
Now you can help Reallocate do good by contributing to their Indiegogo project. Rewards for different funding levels include a miniature 3d statue of yourself, and if you donate enough, they will fly it to your camp in a hexacopter.
Imagine that you are in Black Rock desert close to Center Camp. You step into a brightly decorated space surrounded by ancient statues. You are ushered into a shipping container that has been converted into a high-tech innovation lab. You and your fashionable friend strike a pose which is captured with 3D software and converted into a 3D model. You are given a GPS transponder and specific instructions for your mission. On the way out you catch a lecture on “Scientific Exploration” and watch some aerial 3D footage of flying over Burning Man projected in a 3D imax dome.
After you leave, your image scan is 3D printed into a miniature statue and loaded into a capsule on a multi-copter. The copter navigates to your GPS location.
When your GPS transponder goes off, you look up as the multi-copter hovers above you. It gently lowers a padded capsule with your statue of you inside. You unwrap a 3D medallion of yourself.
Your only responsibility is to return the transponder and tell us your story for our documentary.
Reallocate is located as part of camp IDEATE at 6:30 and Rod’s Road. Come and check out the amazing stuff they’re doing, and please give whatever you can spare to help this vision become a reality.
