Project Blackbox - Fold-up Version and Note from Vezon

Vezon, shown here, knows that as a Bionicle, he needs a lot of compute power and storage. He also needs to rapidly deploy his data center. You see, Vezon is often on the move getting chased here or there. He likes the proposition of a data center that you can install in about 1/10th of the time vs. a traditional data center.

The standard shipping container (20' x 8' x 8.5' LxWxH) is handy because he doesn't need special Bionicle attachments to carry his shipping container around. You will note in the picture that Vezon was careful to keep the container level when he installed it.

Ok, ok...my son's Vezon is actually attached to a fold-up Project Blackbox origami model that Mark Stanton made here at Sun.

To get your own fold-up version of the container, click on the image below and a full PDF will open up (so you might want to open it in a new tab). Cut it out, fold it up, add a little glue, add a little tape, have fun! The image is actually a mini-image, so don't print the image, click through to the PDF.

Have fun, and be like Vezon...install your container on a flat surface.

Road updates and information on SunSPOTs coming soon!

Speaking of Blackbox Toys - Look at this: Model Railway Blackboxes in flickr
We are using them in Germany as a present for our best customers.

a rail car with a Blackbox would jump start an office layout. i printed the prototype and am cutting it while i wait for patches to download :) maybe James Gosling could be persuaded to update his java racetrack to include a java railyard moving Blackbox containers all over! include some marklin digital controllers and sunSpots ...
