So, I am going to Taiwan thanks to In Win! I know, I know, a lot of you know already, but hey, I am excited! I am going to be posting as many updates as I can just before and when I am there to show what we are doing and what we get up to. I will hopefully be able to have a look to see what new products are due to come out too! So, now you know I am going, here is why….
I and Daniel Harper (B NEG) are going to Computex 2016 to compete against another 7 modding teams, each made up of 2 modders from their country. Dan was picked due to his previous excellent work with In Win and he then chose me as his partner in crime so that he knew he would have a drinking buddy. In Win were for me to come along as I have worked with their products previously and I do hope to work with some more soon 😉 . The idea is that we have 24 hours (broken down into 3 8 hour days) to mod an In Win case as much as we can. It will then be voted on by people from media, manufacturers and the public. It is going to be a rather stressful to complete something and very hard to do something that really stands out, but hey, we will do our best! Although the modding will be at the forefront of our minds throughout, I cant help but be excited about meeting some of the other teams and some of the people who are going to be joining us for various reasons, I have been speaking to some of them for years so to finally meet them will be great.
so, here are the other teams:
So, They are the teams, as you can see, some crazy talent to go up against, Dan and myself really have our work cut out for sure. I am not really sure what we are going to build yet, we will just take it steady as per usual and hopefully we will create something that can be done in the very small amount of time that we have. The main thing for us is the experience, to be part of the celebrations for In Win and to meet some people who we have only previously spoken to on forums and facebook. No doubt we will sink a few beers, eat plenty of food and have some good times, and that is what these blogs are for, to show our progress on the build and share our experiences.
The contest is sponsored by some great companies, I have most of them as my sponsors already, so it is great to carry on working with the same guys. These are the guys who are working with In Win to make this competition possible and as always I appreciate their support, without these folks, I wouldn’t be modding and I certainly wouldn’t be going to Taiwan!
So, that is it for now, there isn’t much I can say at the moment as we don’t want to give away any of our plans. So, with nothing else to do, it is going to be good by from me, Dave, from team Running with Scissors!
