    Wish the video actually showed the device/artwork.  Next time could the camera guy step back or use the wide angle so we can see what the thing looks like?

      Agreed. Seemed like a cool structure, but I wish we could see more of it.

    I just paíd $20.87 for an íPad 2.64GB and my Girlfriend loves his Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Cámera that we got for $38.79 there arriving tomorrow by UP S.I will never pay such expensive retail príces in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD T V to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy.
    Here is the website we use to get it all from : http://BidsBit.com
