So, to date, this project includes the following high tech concepts:
- Green construction using locally sourced bamboo - it grows everywhere in D.C.
- Composite construction of mast points (fiberglass and epoxy resin on the bamboo poles), creating a mast structure that's far stronger than steel for the weight
- Arduino Teeny LC's
- Later on in the game, soft robotics for the tentacles.
