We are looking for locations suitable for a large scale SRL performance in the SF Bay Area. We are offering a fee to anyone who can do the following three things to facilitate this:
(1) Find a suitable location near or in San Francisco. Please use the SRL show setup guidelines for this.
(2) Obtain full permission from whoever controls, AND whoever owns the property, for an SRL show.
(3) Secure permits from the local Fire Dept and the Police Dept.
$2000 cash will be paid to anyone who can do these three things successfully.
Please contact Mark Pauline at (markp [at] srl [dot] org) AFTER you have completed #1 & #2.
There is an abundance of information on the SRL website you may use to facilitate (1) and (2). For video reference see the SRL YouTube channel : Genuine Survival Research Labs.
If you reach objective (3), Mark will provide you with materials for the Fire and Police department permitting.
Last week at SRL we asked the question, “What would a machine think was funny 100 years from now?” This is the answer.
SRL Showcase at Zero1 Event at the Computer History Museum.
This mini-show was a robotic re-enactment of Karl Sims’ evolved virtual creatures where genetic code worms spewed out of a head into a pool where creatures evolve. The Spine robot picks one to mutate them and tosses them over to the Track Robot that brings them back into the gene pen for another round of evolution. Then of course SRL are experts at re-enacting the requisite chaos, destruction, and entropy.
Many pages of paperwork later, Mark finally got the Parker Macrospray ITAR ( International Treaty of Arms Regulation) regulated fuel spray nozzles for the Motoman Flamethrower. Note the restrictions listed on the invoice.
These are test nozzles for combustion research. The same macrospray design is used in all the latest fighter jet engines. They generate 99% optimum fuel particle size for best combustion. Perfect for kick ass flamethrowers.
