Keeping to the tradition and subtle arts of Rockbox Towers, but doing it with a twist to celebrate the place we have Rockbox devcon 2011, we decided to make a Rockbox bridge.
We started out by gathering all devices we had in the room that can run Rockbox and distributed them on the construction floor area. As the Android app runs fine on tablets now there’s actually a rather good way to get some solid base into the construction…
Once all material was known, the construction started with a large amount of eager engineers contributing with good and bad ideas and at times very shaky hands:
(wods, scorche, gevaerts and paumary)
The result, involving an iRiver beneath the bridge catching the digital flow, became what might be the longest Rockbox construction done so far:
After the bridge, the work started on the real stuff. Building the tallest Rockbox tower ever made. After a couple of accidents and crashes, the tireless team managed to break the previous 104 cm record and the new Rockbox tower record is now officially 117cm:
