Battery and computer belt done

Leave a comment

Today I finished the last major piece of fabrication for Anthrolume 3.0 – the new battery & computer belt. This part of the suit is a complete ground-up rebuild from last year. The only part in common is the belt itself, to which I’d already sewn a bunch of industrial Velcro.

This updated belt, with its 16 batteries, should keep the suit alive for around 8 hours, or more if I remember to turn down the brightness of the suit when I’m just trudging across the playa.

From here on out it’s software and animations. I’m going to try to finish up the software in the next two weeks, then spend the rest of the time between that and Burning Man creating tons of new original animations that take advantage of the suit’s faster music reactivity.
