And now for something completely different...

Hello there, it's Aaron from DO/CO,

I enjoy when something comes our way and throws our brains in a twist. A project that's fun, quick and a complete departure from the everyday. We recently were
contacted by a company called Nearlife. (For the Boston folks, they are the people behind the Virtual Fish Tank at the Museum of Science) Nearlife is in the process of taking their fish kung fu and turning it into a toy, game, internet experience and television show. They asked us if there was any way we could take their fish side views and develop CAD files and prototypes. We of course said YES! (I have a weakness for things that sound fun.) After some crazy CAD sessions, we got in contact with and Nick helped us out with our 68 part prototype. (I know, thats a lot of parts, they were really small and annoying also.) We received parts about 3 days later on a Friday and after a frantic weekend filling, sanding, priming and painting, we dropped off parts to Nearlife on Monday for electronic build out. Nearlife is still developing the software side of this concept, when it's ready to go, we'll post more details.
