Origin of Cool: USA
I will always remember Battlestar Galactica as a 70s TV series that was more appealing than Star Trek and had much cooler bad guys than the Star Wars Stormtroopers. The Cylons were like a cross between Knight Rider and that insane Daft Punk robot helmet.
Fanboys John Boyer, Alex Jacobson, Joseph DeRose, Sam Frank and Sam DeRose have taken their love for Battlestar Galactica to the next level. They have created a Viper flight simulator that is to be unveiled this May, at Maker Faire 2012. They have fueled the project by using the increasingly hot Kickstarter – a site that crowd sources the funding needed for awesome projects like this one. So far they have raised more than double their intended goal. Their cute USP for the project – a VIP option that offers to reconstruct the Viper in a location and time of your choosing!
