Congratulations! You certainly deserved it - look out Blue Man Group
So what was in the green bottle that had you grimacing?
Hah, thank you! "Blue Man" was definitely the feel I was going for.

This is awesome! Congrats on the performance CGenco.
Would you mind sharing some more details? I'm fairly new to this, just trying to figure out how you dealt with the Ground part. Did you have it attached to some part of your body?
Thank you! And I'd love to. I tried a whole bunch of things to get ground to reliably stay on my skin (including a bunch of different "bracelet" ideas like in the Makey Makey Kickstarter video), but I needed something I could attach/reattach easier than a bracelet. I tried aluminum foil wrapped around a limb, but it was sweaty and didn't stay on.
What ended up working really well was taking a glob of silly putty with a really long ground wire threaded through it and sticking it in the waistband of my shorts. Made it super easy to attach/detach for bringing the props on/off stage, and was super reliable.
This was really awesome Congratulations!
That's great! I just showed it to the entire Lifelong Kindergarten group (the MIT Media Lab research group that Jay and I are part of). I love the dramatic tension and buildup to the end. Congrats on the win!!
THAT'S SO COOL AHH! Tell everyone there that they're awesome and that I thank them for this fantastic magical device. I've been a complete software guy up until this thing - it's now inspired me to get so much more into the hardware side of things.
