"File:" cannot be used as a page name in this wiki.


[edit] Nuetsrallye 2.0

The local youth commission will organize a nightrallye departing from Strassen (Fräiheetsbaam) and syn2cat will deliver some special effects for decorating the surroundings.

Furthermore, we will have a small expo booth where we will provide visitors with information.

Note to GRL savvy hackers : The place is craving for a lasertag ;-)

[edit] Decoration

[edit] Stand

  • Flyers
  • Posters
  • Throwies
  • Fan with LEDs turning around like crazy
  • Notebook with external sound speakers to show videos by syn2cat (remember the one from XMAS '10 ?)
  • Wireless Electricity LED :)

[edit] Forest

  • Threads (Faden) which hang from one tree to another in the horizontal way on which throwies are hanging down
  • CAUTION sign with LEDs on the borders and cool saying in the middle or picture
  • Glue more throwies together - some sort of ball - and have a "Throwie Wollknäuel"
  • A white blanket that should fall from the trees and serve in some sort as ghost
  • Tense a "thick" thread from one tree to another and maybe mark the endpoints with LEDs --> Function: don't hang it to high, because the kids should touch it on the level of the stomach --> should not hurt anyone
  • Ding Dong things (bells) with batteries (Infrared) --> OK
  • V for Vendetta masks - fill the eyes with red LEDs and the mouth as well - may be a different color ; don't forget the hat --> hang it somewhere where it looks scary
  • Take the little cable tree from the chill, hang a few LEDs on the branches and positionate it somewhere nice
  • If people trigger a thread on the height of their feet leaves should fall from above - Yes like in Frau Holle, but with leaves instead of feathers
  • If the kids step on a trigger a bell should ring --> OK


There were further ideas developed during the first brainstorming session. Check your inbox for a list of those ideas or read below

  • Throwies on a tree (worked well)

2 throwies (without magnet) on the ends of a 1-2m string to hang over branches of trees along the path. About 12-20 strings needed

Owner: /

Design: done (ask Gunstick what to do)

Build time: 4h (need to buy string!)

Setup time: fast

Status: strings --> done ; throwies --> need to be done Friday

  • Harddisk chimes (not a hit)

Owner: /

yeah, not enough wind in the wood

  • "Lachsack" - Stereo turned on with remote

that was slopjong's idea, but the hardware failed shortly before so we

came up wit this:

  • arduino that makes sound when somebody walks on a contact (paper +alu)

--> which sound? (or simply use an mp3player?) also Jhemp proposed we could use his compact but very loud amplifier. Owner: Peter Design: todo Build time: ? Setup time: probably someone needs to be present all time in the forest

  • Skulls in a Jar with LEDs (wasn't done becaus of lack of skulls)

Owner: Macfreak

  • Wet strings dangling onto the path (not too bad, but making them wet wasdifficult, they dried too fast)

Owner: /

Design: done (ask Gunstick what to do)

Build time: 2h

Setup time: can be slow if you end up with a huge knotty mess!

  • throwies on a motor? A motor running on batteries with a long stick rotating like a propeller. LEDs on both ends.

Owner: iThierry

Design: todo

Build time: probably 2h

Setup time: hmm... fixation needs to be designed too!

Status: Self-made prototype 'Hans' or 'Klaus' --> done ; Next version(s) need some perfection (lot of motors recovered of the disk drives)

  • Can we use the UV LEDS somewhere? Bring up your ideas!

More ideas... but please note: there is no power supply in the woods!

  • Make an interesting floor. Using bubble plastic, beer caps, or anything else which is usually not found in a forest
  • Do something with the massive amount of balloons
  • Create a spider web out of cables to hang across the path


  • do something with reflectors (need to buy those) syn2cat will pay the cost.

Status: Mirror recovered already from the overhead projector(s)

  • the invisible wall... or labyrinth. use transparent palette wrap, you can buy that at muller & wegener
