Maker-about-town Matthew Borgatti, who brought us MST3Shades, printable handcuffs, and Bokode @ Home (among other awesome projects) has been nominated for a $25,000 grant from Volkswagen’s The Fun Theory initiative, whom you may remember as the sponsors of the Staircase Piano, the Bottle Recyling Arcade Game, and the World’s Deepest Rubbish Bin installations.

If he wins, Matt will use the grant money to build his “Anywhere Organ,” a demountable, portable pipe organ which he hopes to take on a tour of public installations across the country. You can read about (and vote for!) Matt’s proposal here.

Excelsior, Matt!

    Thank you so much for putting this up. If the project goes through I promise to make it as awesome as humanly possible.

    I hope it wins. There aren’t many other projects in the running that are anywhere close to being worthy!
