“I’ll bet you a bounty (candybar) you won’t have this thing running before christmas.” – DD

One of the big attractions (literally as well as figuratively) at our local hackerspace is a real Dancing Stage machine. With all it’s noise and blinking lights it’s hard to ignore.

Of course this machine would have the same effect on any gaming / music / other event. Taking this machine to these events however would:

a – rob the hackerspace of it’s loud blinky presence;
b – raise the risk of damage and wear to the machine;
c – break the backs of whomever was to transport the machine.

Arrows in Motion

The idea was born; building a machine that’s compact and lightweight, yet sturdy and still loud, blinky and attractive. All this in time for christmas. I will get that bounty..
