Project Giant Operation (fall 09) We've been asked by Make:Philly to help make a life sized game of operation, and have it ready to go on Saturday, December 19th for a featured event of Body Worlds 2 at the Franklin Institute. There are existing examples of this project, like the one at this instructable.


Be available and ready to work on weekends to do you whatever it takes to get the thing done by Dec 19. Or if you can't spend time on it, donate to help make it happen at our Project Pledgie!

Project Sketch

Here are some sketches of what our design is 1) An outer weight bearing shell, made by 1x? a 4x8 sheet of 5/8 plywood. 2) An inner components platform containing electronics, wells for parts to go into, etc.
