  • high above the crowd, the space over the booth will be festooned with tooth pick sculptures by [[monad]
  • the space will also be decorated with light.
  • a sign will rise up from behind, announcing the presence of Nosebridge to all.
  • miloh will be bringing a project as of yet still under wraps
  • 3D head scanning for 3D printers, etc. If we had a big screen TV, my lappy can output HDMI. Headscans look cool on TV. My printer is currently broken, so can we borrow a Type-A?
