    Norio’s Custom Toy at 1:00 AM Gallery

    Posted by: Norio under Culture

    I was recently asked by the 1:00 AM Gallery to participate in a group show called I Am Legion. The show combines three of my passions; art, toys, and robots. So naturally I accepted the offer. I was one of forty or so artists with backgrounds in a variety of styles and mediums, who were given ThreeA vinyl toys to customize as we chose.

    Thank you to my fellow Astronauts for coming out and showing the love
    on opening night! The awesome results are on display at the gallery until December 4th.

    Canaveral

    Posted by: Marco under Design

    It is no secret that Astro loves bikes, so I created the Canavaral concept to show one potential future for our collective passion. I designed it to incorporate two of California’s biggest obsessions: freedom-loving lifestyle and eco-friendly values. I gleaned my inspiration from the NASA Apollo program which encompasses advanced electric technology, landscape discovery, and NASA's distaste for gravity. The freedom of motorcycling here on earth is the closest we will get to the freedom of floating through low gravity on the moon, and their space suits look awesome.

    Grace Under Pressure

    Posted by: Grace under Culture

    This past sunday I challenged myself to run the 10th annual US Half Marathon in San Francisco. Influenced by fellow Astro mates Norio and Dana who ran a half marathon earlier this year gave me the confidence to attempt this. It was until mile 9 that I felt this confidence, and after there was only pain and screaming in my head: "wtf were you thinking?!"

    Like all things, the worst passes. Each draining hill was gifted by a beautiful view of the city. Running across the golden gate bridge was a unique experience in itself.

    I'm glad I did it, and I'm glad it's over.

    Move Over Rover And Let OnLive Take Over

    Posted by: Tom Galbraith under News

    Congratulations to OnLive for maxing-out the Innovation of the Year category from Stuff magazine’s Gadget Awards 2011. OnLive’s cloud gaming subscription service, driven by an Astro-designed controller and MicroConsole, are giving the gas-guzzling gaming establishment something to check for in their rear views. Caution Xbox and PS3: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.

    Let It Grow!

    Posted by: Tom Galbraith under Culture

    Sick and tired of feeling bald faced, or like a bearded hippie? Come join us in celebrating Movember. Everyone knows that November is Mustache appreciation/awareness month, but who really does anything about it?

    Astro. That’s who. Even though there are possibly more mustaches on Earth than there have ever been, we salute this flaunting. Mustaches are nothing more than facial hair pennants, flapping in the wind, but they also serve as a personal man-ifestation of one’s confidence, self-worth, and accomplishment. Please check out the following events, (check venue websites for accurate times and pricings,) and occupy your face with a handsome soup strainer.
