    I saw this earlier and thought..................

    Instead of getting people to pledge money, why don't they go to all the major PC marketers and software builders and ask for pledges?

    I'm pretty sure that Microsoft and Apple probably have a spare million or so rattling around, and as for companies like Dell and HP......

    It could be built in next to no time, as opposed to waiting for individuals to cough up!

    Yeah, at least the size of a lorry, should be good!
    It's interesting the mix of old and new with using 3d modelling to get it working first.
