I am new here, but some of you know me by my old blog or the GBCs I´ve posted in my youtube channel (yiharua).
This year, the Spanish biggest event will be held in Zaragoza, a considerable city in the North-East of the country. We are preparing it in a technological centre/museum, and as a part of the exhibition (which will of course including City sets, Licenses, and other stuff) they required that the expo was focused on Lego Technic, Mindstorms and "those Lego machines that move balls", as they stated.
With this in mind, we are prompting our community to build a GBC. If each of us was able to do that, including my 14/15 GBCs we could go up to 60 modules. But that is not the point of this article; I was only remarking that point because I have already edited the "GBC events to come" article at the wikipedia.
The issue I am here for is a small talk I have to prepare. It is another of the requirements of the museum to held an exhibition there. Of course, the theme will be GBC. Other mates at the LUG are preparing other kind of conferences, but my task is this one. So I am here to ask for a little brainstorm, if possible, of ideas to stand out in the talk. It is not only for exhibitors, but any attendance can come in and listen to it, so I have to prepare an introduction of the Great Ball Contraption world for everyone. I hope I can talk about Team Hassenplug, Philo, the Standards of GBC, and a little bit of the history of our world (including, maybe, recent world records in Europe and USA). I also could include somewhat of a video presentation at the start of it all. My intention is to make it somewhat interactive, so a module step by step live building could be interesting. What do you think?
Any idea would be great! I am open for everything, as I haven´t yet started the plot, so let your minds be free and brainstorm as you wish. Your help is going to be awesome (Everything is awesome!!!)
Only so you know, the exhibition is in "Etiopia, center for art and technology" museum, in Zaragoza, on the 7th and 8th of November, this year.
It will, unfortunately, be in Spanish. My hope is to record it and upload it to youtube; subtitles will be done if time happens to exist for me (studying Medicine ATM).
After all we only want to explain to everyone how this things work, the easy and difficult things of being in this GBC world and so on.
