The Ardent Mobile Cloud Platform is a mobile 8-bit style cloud, designed to be deployed on a forklift, crane, or telehandler. It carries up to 5 passengers, 100 gallons of water, and a gasoline generator. A multitouch remote app controls sound and light effects, streaming music, rain, and mist.
AMCP was built by the art collective Ardent Heavy Industries for Burning Man 2013. Micah Elizabeth Scott led the lighting design, electronics, and software. The cloud was the first project to use Fadecandy. Photo credits: Micah Scott, Neil Girling, Julia Wolf, Audrey Penven
