Are you a plastics engineer or are you just saying things?

lol I'm wondering the same thing. With that mindset we can say tooth paste will kill us because it's in plastic.

Thanks to the Solyndra bankruptcy we've stocked up on unbelievable industrial grade robotics and solar panels for pennies on the dollar.



Better than christmas could ever be.

And we got 6 of them

And enough solar panels to power... a lot. Industrial auctions are the best.

Of course, my dad is assembling the ultimate nerd playground/invention breeder.

I'm dropping out and moving back to CA in a few weeks to get the jump on the UAV company, we've got quite the team back there to get things going. This industry is looking incredibly promising, should be fun stuff to come. So hey, once we get bigger and you know your solidworks and materials science, there's a place for ya!

Also the housing company is going to be next after this one.

So you're actually going to do it? I'm serious about this, if I'm ever near your area of the world I will definitely stop by.

Yeah it's really happening, Boulder is great and all, and i'll miss it, but just like most people that dropped out of college to pursue an idea, i see the potential and know that this is time critical. Every day i spend out here in college i feel is lost time, but i fear the hole will definitely be there without me really intuitively understanding more advanced mathematics and engineering...


I'm actually moving to San Francisco, but it's only an hour from where the factory will be, so if you're even remotely close we'll have a visit to the playground.

Ballsy, but I respect that. If I'm not hiking through Peru next summer I'll be taking a tour across the country and you can be sure that I'll stop by.
