Figured this was the best place
an Art Project for Burningman 2012 called "Fancy Taxi Service
I'd like to test-drive
a small scale version at Spring PDF before we finalize our full scale plans.
Prolly won't be back East in the Spring, but I can help coordinate from the other side.Here is the initial idea:
http://fts.hoburt.comThings to test out:
- the Kiosk Design
- Radio Transmission
Fancy Taxis can be any vehicle willing to transport passengers in a creative manner. I'm currenly arguing with the Powers that Be over the possibility of an official DMV sub-division as to allow for a variety of specialzed vehicles... we'll take anything from golf carts to school busses - as long as it's Fancy
.What makes it Fancy?
- CB Radio
- FM Tuner
- "Outside" speakers (like an ice cream truck)
- Mutated ( an allowance for lesser-mutations would be awesome as it will allow those with little funding to fancy up their vehicle
without having to fully mutate it -- i've been told that this could "lead to abuse of the system" but I've already planned to cap the drivers
.. and besides, if you don't have a Fancy Taxi License
, you can't be driving on the playa anyway )If you'd like to Help, simply jump in anywhere and get started.
