We’re taking a 27-foot bus and transforming it into a Burning man playa-exploring submarine – one with recycled wood and bamboo fencing. Atop the bus covered in bamboo structure will be a welded platform with a safety railing to hold 15 participants. On the front end of the platform there will be a periscope lamp made out of thin metal wire and covered in fabric with lighting inside to create colorful light-up tubes.
At night, SS-909 will be illuminated with 1,216 feet of Flex LED strips using 23,000 LEDs. Clear plastic hoses will be attached to the wood and bamboo used to guide the LED strips in the direction needed, the clear plastic will also work as a transmitter for the light to increase the "glow" effect.
The vehicle inside will be an inviting den with couches and cushions for our fellow playa commuters to sit and relax. Read Less
