Super Mario Night Kite

Mark “352K” Rober wrote in with his latest project: an assembly of balloons with throwies inside, creating pixels in the sky. And nice call on tethering it so you can get those toxic coin cells back!

  1. I love this so much! I can’t believe that cop said “light it on fire”, I was expecting him to say “don’t you dare launch that”. Seriously, what is the legality of this? I mean it’s legal to fly a kite, it’s legal to fly a balloon. If it’s at night, so long as it’s lit (which this certainly is), I would THINK there’s nothing wrong with it. There really is SO many ideas this could be used for. I can totally see advertisers starting to do this.. Some big event like a superbowl, or the olympics, suddenly you see a pixelated pepsi logo flying by..
