    Please tell me where I can get more details about the 4 legged squid bubble thing. I think I’m in love!

      Unfortunately, many of the Makers in Japan had not yet documented their projects online. I’m not sure where to get more info on that super cool ride.

        I’ve seen video of the squidbubble thing online — probably youtube, but I’ve no idea what you’d type in to find it. Odds are, I found it through the Make blog, though, if you’re determined enough to search their archive.
