” Hokey Spokes Hokey Spokes are transparent “”blades”” that attach to your bicycle spokes. As these blades spin during riding, a computer inside the blades modulates the internal LED lights so that design images and custom text appear.
The user can decide how many spokes in a variety of colors they want to place on the bicycle wheel. Up to 6 “”Blades”” can be placed on each wheel. The more blades, the more visibility and persistence of vision at lower speeds. 2 Blades/Wheel look good, 3 Blades/Wheel look great, and more than three look amazing.
Hokey Spokes are designed so that they fit virtually any mountain or road bike with a wheel diameter of 24″” or greater. Hokey Spokes can be used on front and back wheels at the same time.
Each Hokey Spoke contains a number of designs and messages. The blades can cycle through all the designs or can be set to play a custom text message all the time. Play mode is selected by using one of the waterproof keys located on any blade.

Reposted from 2007 editions of Jack Rabbit Speaks:
Jack Rabbit Speaks Volume 11, Issue 11 June 14, 2007 It’s the fourth annual Resource Issue!
Here it is!
There are lots of great resources out there that can help you prepare for Burning Man. Some of them are below. Rather than mention them piecemeal, we gather these postings and put them all together in a single issue so you can refer back to it rather than going crazy searching for individual posts.
Our annual clarification: Lots of vendors from within the community contact the Rabbits asking us to let our readers know about discounts or playa goodies they offer that you just can’t get anywhere else…well, some of our readers love to hear about this stuff, but some don’t, and many don’t want to get these offers with their regular JRS news. Thus, we created the once-a-year RESOURCE ISSUE. Those of you that want to hear about deals, discounts, and playa goodies, read on! Those that don’t – hit delete, and your sensibilities shall be spared. Regular JRS will be back next week!
But, before we dive in: your Rabbit friends remind you that preparing for Burning Man doesn’t have to equal a no-holds-barred consumer frenzy. In the year of the Green Man, our job more than ever is to encourage you toward thoughtfulness as you prepare, with an eye to the footprint we’ll all leave on AND off the playa. So take the time to THINK about what you’ll need for your playa project and your survival, and ways to get it while still making less of an impact. What do you already have? What can you repurpose? Remember: reduce, reuse, recycle, rethink, repair, refill…reflect on your consumption and think about the theme as you prepare. It matters.
We’ve also listed some resources below to help you consider your project in a greener light. Please take a moment to see if there’s some way you can cross off some items on your preparation list WITHOUT setting foot in a big box store or buying unnecessary junk. And finally, remember: the best gift is not a plastic trinket, but a genuine piece of you that speaks to who you are, and you don’t have to spend a dime to give of yourself. THINK.
Now, then…in case you were wondering, what the resource issue ISN’T is a list of “Burning Man recommended” vendors, deals, or events. We basically include everyone who gets us a post by the deadline (though it’s a safe bet that all those listed are JRS subscribers, at least). WE can’t say we’ve used these vendors ourselves, nor are we recommending one over the other — our job is sharing information, not endorsing particular businesses here. If you’re curious about a vendor, ask your friends or post on your local list, ePlaya or on Tribe, etc.
Of course, if we’re especially hot about something, we’ll say so: for example: one burner enterpreneur that wrote to us works with an awesome material called GlowFur, and from it, created a very special, very groovy glow bracelet for your playa nighttime safety and glowlumination this year. It’s cool-lookin’ stuff, to be sure, but why are the Rabbits so excited about one little glowy bracelet? Because, friends, GlowFur is donating ONE HUNDRED PERCENT of the profits from the sale of these bracelets to the Black Rock Art Foundation (http://www.blackrockarts.org)!! No strings, no catch – you buy a bracelet and rock it on the playa (or anywhere else), and 100% of the profit goes to BRAF to help fund year-round interactive art in local communities like yours! Now that’s impressive. (We’re also very happy that David from GlowFur bothered to look around for an affordable battery op solution for illuminating the fur, opting away from the use of disposable glow sticks in this bracelet and creating playa-bling you can re-rock night after night! Big ups to David for taking the time for that search.)
But there’s more here for your preparation fun. Playa wear galore (lots of sales for JRS readers); discount truck rental for burning transportation; heck, we’ve even got mannequin parts for you. Check it out, and have fun as you get ready. We’re almost there!
We’ll be back next week with our regularly scheduled update on our upcoming trip to the playa – where the Man will burn only 80 days from now (oh my word I have to stop staring at that number. Did I just type that? Whoa!)

~~~ RESOURCE ISSUE: RECYCLE/REUSE RESOURCES! ~~~
BEFORE YOU SHOP…READ UP ON GREEN BUILDING AND REUSED/RECYCLED RESOURCES!
It’s true…you really can build your camp or project without ever setting foot in a big box store, and rescue objects that might otherwise have headed to the landfill while you do it. Ask David Best, who saw the beauty in scrap wood castoff from a puzzle factory and turned them into a true Burning Man phenomenon with the Temples: recycled materials make for beautiful, meaningful art.
THIS is a sampling of linked Bay Area/Regional resources for recycled/reused building materials; most municipalities have their own recycling coordinators that can direct residents to local resources like these. Hit up Google or your local recycling center for suggestions in your area, and if you know of them, share them on your local discussion lists!
* The Reuse People (Oakland) http://www.thereusepeople.org * The Reusable Lumber Co. (Woodside) http://www.reusablelumber.com * Building Resources (SF) http://www.buildingresources.org * Urban Ore (Berkeley) http://www.urbanore.citysearch.com * Garbage Reincarnation (Santa Rosa) http://www.garbage.org/index.htm * Caldwell’s (New & some used. SF) http://www.caldwells.com * Whole House Bldg Supply (E. Palo Alto) http://www.driftwoodsalvage.com
These local organizations sell inexpensive donated materials for art projects:
The Build it Green Product and Service Directory also provides some useful information:
Even more sources for cheap and free stuff:
* San Mateo Recycleworks: http://www.recycleworks.org/cgi-bin/bin/user/searchdatabases.pl * http://www.recycleworks.org/reuse_center.html * South Bayside Waste Management Authority’s Rethink Waste site: http://www.rethinkwaste.org/index.php
These online exchanges are FULL of people trading or selling useful used goods:

We say: We dig that they have a simple key that shows which products are third party certified, which have reduced chemical content, which are biodegradable, which are recycled, etc….easy and smarter solutions for camp essentials. WE ALSO REMIND YOU: Just because it’s biodegradable doesn’t mean you don’t have to pack it out. Don’t put it on the playa — leave no trace!

CAMP N’ PLAY SAFE
“We are specializing in quality items, mostly from the professional safety industry, that are very applicable to extreme camping conditions like Burning Man. We started using some of this gear ourselves for Burning Man and realized other people might want easy access to this level of gear in 1 convenient location. We are carrying everything from high end glow sticks, to quality flashlights and strobes, to first aid kits, welder’s burn kits, stylish safety glasses, particulate respirators (aka DUST MASKS that breathe easier), ear plugs to give away or keep the music out of your head while you try to sleep,cases to keep the playa out of your electronics, and basic work gloves — all the way up to welding gloves and safety hats. We can also help you get any high-end safety items you might be looking for, just drop us a line.”

O’NEILL RENTS TRUCKS
Still need a truck to haul your stuff from the Bay Area? While not every rental house is playa friendly, this one even offers a discount to burners who promise to bring back the trucks CLEAN.
San Rafael – 424 Irwin Street (415) 456-3252 Oakland – Corner of 7th St. & MLK Under Freeway (510) 375-0167
20% Discount off Standard Truck Rental for all Burners (Ask for Burning Man Discount)
Again, you MUST say the rental is for Burning Man, and you MUST promise to take the vehicle to a car wash and return it clean.
(General tip about trucks: every truck that’s returned dirty and dusty to ANY vendor is a black mark on the Burning Man community as a whole, and another vendor who might decide not to rent to burners any more next year….so be conscientious…clean out your rental truck!)
Fire artists: here’s a burner friendly place to find your “paints”! This vendor is in San Leandro so there is no Hazmat charge if you will-call the items. He stocks chemicals in bulk. You must call ahead one day for small orders, under 100#’s. Many of the artists may remember Mark — he worked at Bryant Labs in Berkeley until they went out of business. We are told he is very friendly to the artist community.
BURNER BIKES IN RENO
From the Reno Kiwanis club: “OK it’s a leap of faith, and we hope it doesn’t bury us. The Black Rock Bikes folks donate bikes to us, and we (Kiwanis Bike Program) fix them up for kids. We get bikes donated from the Reno area all year as well. This means we have more than a hundred bikes that are not good for kids, but are great for Burners. We don’t want to worry about rental return, so we’ll sell them to you for $30, $40 or $50 depending on how good and how cool the bike is.
If you bring them back after you’re done, we’ll be super-grateful, and we’ll re-use them this year for sure, but if not, that’s ok too. If you want to see how we use the proceeds for our bikes for kids programs, our web site is http://www.kiwanisbikes.org. Check us out and help us out. Bikes only — no other items — no bike racks or decorations. Send us an email early to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can reserve one for you for the price you tell us until we run out. We plan to have more than a hundred bikes ready for the big day — so let us know early!
If you want to take a chance that we still have bikes when you get to Reno, come by our shop at 2605 Comstock in Reno and see what we still have. Or stop by and say hi even if you don’t need a bike and see what we’re doing for kids from Gerlach to Fallon and for our own Reno kids as well. We’ll be at the shop the week before Burning Man from 10-5 daily.
Reno: If you want to share in the fun early and decorate a bike for the Tour de Nez Decorated Bike Contest, check out their site and enter your bike. We’ll have prizes for best decorated and some other fun prizes on June 16 and your bike will be part of the parade of decorated bikes at the Tour. It would be a great chance to kick off your artwork early and put your unique bike in our contest at the Tour. Join the fun and help us let folks know that we’re making biking a reality for kids in the Reno area.”

PLAYATECH ANNOUNCES 2006 “GREEN HOME” FURNITURE LINE OF THE FUTURE!
Shareware you can sit on!
“Playatech is pleased to announce the long awaited introduction of its BM06 ‘Green Home’ Furniture Line of the Future! Delayed a year by hope and fear, the Green Home line includes everything needed to furnish a home for $500, move in one minivan load, and save the planet while you’re at it. It rocks for Burning Man too! Check it out now at http://www.Playatech.com.
The new Playatech line features three dozen radically cool furniture and entertainment products anyone can fabricate entirely from standard plywood, and every one collapses flat for shipment. Yes, all the furniture for a 2 bedroom house or large bar camp will fit in one mini-van!
According to Playatech founder Sunshine, ‘At BM05, Playatech launched the Playa Love Seat, Playa Pew, and Larry Boy Lounger to insane acclaim. We changed camp seating forever, but we failed to kill IKEA – so we huddled and muddled and redesigned every piece of furniture you need to live, work, and play!’ The new line includes a sofa that converts to a queen bed, daybeds that push together into playpens, bars you can dance on, and a dinette that turns into a den. Even recycled 1972 designs we found in a book.
All Green Home products turn you into an artist, and are radically cheap, easy to own, and available exclusively from Playatech — the world’s only brand built on the 10 Burning Man Principles. And they’re GREEN! Exterior plywood is 95-99% renewable wood, much of which now comes from FSC-Certified sustainable forests, and the rest is relatively innocuous glue. Playatech eliminates factories, packaging, end-product distribution, retail stores, exploited child labor, and nearly all bad things capitalism introduces between nature’s end product and your rear end.
What’s more: when your furniture has outlived its usefulness, UNLIKE a regular couch, the entire energy content of Green Home furniture can be cleanly recovered as useful heat in a proper furnace – it is food for giant Mechabolic slugs! If burned in an open fire, the wood puts out more noxious fumes than the glue.
Playatech offers great green furniture for your mobile lifestyle that obsoletes landfills, at an unbelievable price! And that is no Silicon Valley pipedream.

Hello from a wonderfully hot July in Gerlach, where this rabbit has a quick holiday-week layover…beautiful playa sunset last night. Getting excited yet?
To the reader: here’s your second dose of RESOURCE madness for your preparation planning, to fix some posts and update things we missed. We’re catching up on the unsubscribes from those who wrote last week with a new batch – thanks for your patience!
To our resource-vending friends who squeaked into this highly unusual second issue by virtue of the one or two posts we actually missed: next year’s deadline will very likely be June 1 again, FYI. Mark your calendar now, and don’t miss out!

BOGO SOLAR FLASHLIGHT – BUY ONE, GET ONE…
We love the light and the concept – check it out:
“The BoGo Light is a scientific, eco-friendly breakthrough that is making an impact worldwide. BoGo means Buy one, Give one. We want our lights to benefit the less fortunate; therefore, with each light purchased in the developed world, a second identical light will be donated to an organization that will distribute it in the developing world with our direct financial support. Give the Gift of Light, and Help Us Change the World!
Why does light matter? Two billion people living in the developing world rely on kerosene lanterns, candles, and single-use battery flashlights for light at night. Not only are these options expensive, dangerous, and harmful to the environment, they also negatively impact health, education, and security.”

TWO PARTICIPANT SUGGESTIONS: LIGHTS LIGHTS LIGHTS
Editorial from a participant: “Ok, so now that you put out the resource issue, all the cats like me who’ve been distracted have another thing to add. Is there a place we can post additional resources for shtuff? I have two more items about lighting sources:
Polybrite makes hand-held wands, vests, and collars with with bright LED’s that run on AA batteries. Burly with great colors. I got mine at Homeland Associates, Inc. at an aviation convention. Wasn’t big on the company name, but the people are cool, and the lights are impressive. http://www.homelandassociates.com/products/polybrite.htm
The other’s the Pak-Lite, a terrific light on top of a 9-volt with two bright leds. Not cheap (about $25), but lasts forever, as long as you don’t lose it.

PEE FUNNELS FOR THE LADIES
Pee Funnels make it so you can stand up instead of sitting down…
“Hi Andie, I saw this pee funnel for women and thought you might like to post it (if you already haven’t!). I used to camp across from Pee Funnel Camp, and it was a big hit. This one is the pro model!
Happy Peeing and Burning, 😉 Cosmo”
MICHAEL’S LIGHT TOYS
“This will be my 10th year to go to Burning Man and I have been helping to light up the community for over 9 years. I can help light up you, your costumes, your camp, your ride and your art. Just let me know what you have in mind and I will work with you to create your vision. Also, I am the only distributor of Snakewire(TM). It looks equally as good during the day as it does at night. Snakewire(TM) has high-brite EL wire inside of it and comes in many colors, including black light responsive colors. You can match your costume with many of the Snakewire(TM) colors.
If you will be in the City on July 22nd or August 12th, I will be at the Prepare for the Playa events – www.preparefortheplaya.com. You can stop by and see me there. If you cannot make it to the events, please visit me on line at www.michaelslighttoys.com. Or you can call me to set up an appointment to come to Concord (California) to see what I have – 925.686.2677.
