And hey, you'll get nifty prizes! The breakdown of my favorites:
$30: Custom clue-by-four! Know someone who needs a clue? We'll engrave a custom message into a pine 2x4 to help get the message across!
$50: iPad stand! This is the thing that got called a bondage curlicue at Readercon. :)
$75: Balisong screwdriver.
$110: iPad stand and screwdriver.
$200: Standing computer desk.
$225: The launcher! Launches anything roughly the size of a tennis ball - water balloons, snowballs, Nerf stuff, glitterbombs, whatever you want. Half slingshot, half crossbow, all awesome. ATTN: LARPers. I am just saying.
$400: A set of parts for the 2'x4' gantry.
$600: A set of parts for the 4'x8' gantry.
$2,000/$2,500: Full mechanical kit/electronics + parts for the 4'x8' gantry. (Here, have a picture of Sindrian building it. Eye candy!)

Still wondering what the heck CNC tech is and why you should care? Read this post!
We have under $2K to raise and five days to do it. If just a fraction of those of you who are reading this kick in just enough for a clue-by-four, we can get this done today. And then we'll be less twitchy. I'm more fun when I'm not twitchy! <3 In all seriousness, let's do this thing.
Next post will be WTD.
