My understanding is that if it has a motor of any kind, it must be registered. It doesn't matter where the motor derives its power. If you pedal to charge a battery that powers a motor, it would require a license. Go pure pedal power without a motor and there's no licensing hassle/risk. Good luck!

Hi Lovelymoon, Sounds like you'll be a creative and friendly asset to any camp. The advice others gave is good and true. On the other hand, a lot of times when someone creates a post like yours, someone quickly replies with an offer to join their camp. That's probably more likely to happen if the po...

Thanks for bringing art, or whatever cool idea it is, to the playa, on your first burn, no less! Thanks also for being sure it is lit (I hope that's part of what the power is for - if it's a project out on the playa). It's going to be a moonless year this year. I'm glad about that, personally.

That is an extremely cool idea! One of the best ideas for a participatory gift ever. Does it really end up like a sealed tin can, like a can of corn? I've already got ideas of what to put it in it. Yeah, some dust would be required. We all love bringing the playa smell back to the default world. Mis...

No MINE!! Hey, can we share? We're working on a live music project for 2008, and I was wanting at least one horn player and trumpet would be fantastic.

There was a live group with a percussionist, drummer and keys playing in an uncovered dome around midnight Friday night on the esplanade pretty close to 2:00.

My friends who helped that person were shocked at how much dangerous, unlit stuff was out there. I bet t...
