Bre and his friends make things.

Bre and his friends make things like space ballons. Sometimes they launch them and are unable to find them. Although the project has been abandoned the videos are very informative and show what amazing things a small team with a little money and off-the-self technology could do. Earlier this year a Canadian team had success with their space balloon and got some amazing aerial photos.

Instead of playing, that second link (to zedomax.com) sends me to someone's Amazon store page when clicking on the embedded video.

The mellotron was kind of boring, but the Weekend Projects podcast is really good for getting ideas.

I wonder if the poor bastard that got hit in the head with one of the missing ones coming in from 30000 ft thinks they're so amazing?

That's pretty cool.

This is great. I've seen a few of these attempts previously, but the pictures from the last link are worth it, definitely.

If you think the mellotron is boring, you should check out the original one made by Mike Walters.

They should launch one of these near O'Hare. Think of all the fun pix they could get!
