It's been a minute since the last post and there's lots and plenty on the go.
First off: I am very happy to announce 'Dreams to Dreams' the DCTO custom show is locked for December 6th, 2008 to January 4th, 2009 at JANM (Japanese American National Museum) in LA. 50+ invited artists are already working their magic the DCTO figures. I'll have a list of the artists for you soon.
Next: DCTO Spring Contest... Now that Spring is finally here, the DIY GID DCTO will be going on sale soon on the Chocolate Soop Shop Price 40.00USD. Here's your chance to win 1 of 2 DIY GID DCTO for your very own in a Chocolatier exclusive mission. All you have to do is send in a photo of your DCTO in a Zen spot that you love to hang out at. In a park, your favourite café, the train station, wherever it is that you find your stillness. There no major rules other than you have be on the mailing list (Only my fellow Chocolatiers are eligible), and you have to have taken the photo yourself. In focus and good lighting are pluses. Short listed photos will be posted on the DCTO project site. Closing date for photos is April 30, 2008. The 2 best photos (IMO) will each win a DIY GID DCTO. The sakura are blossoming, so get out there and find your Zen.
3rdly: A sneak peek at the one of the projects on the table. Fresh off the drafting board, I give you MMARTIN™ (Multimode Adaptable Routine Task Innovation).
This project is going to be pretty exciting. All the update on the project will be posted on Vinyl Pulse and of course here for all you Chocolatires to see first.
Here's the short version of the back story.
Manufactured by Friend Industries Inc., the MMARTIN™ unit is heralded as the work of the future, offering tomorrow's solutions today. By filling a gap in the labour market, the MMARTIN™ series is poised to become the industry standard in robotics.
As always, if you have any questions or just want to say hey, fire me an e-mail or post a comment here.
Back at you soon...
