I met Michael and Cameron about a year ago when I was waiting tables. They were there celebrating the send-off to SXSW of an instrument--the Gemini Capsule--that they had built. Not only that, but Michael is a circuit bender, something we'll get into later. The woman waiting on them got me to strike up a conversation, and it only took a year to finally get the interview.
So, last week we finally interviewed the awesome Cameron Moore and Michael Una of Unatronics. We interviewed them out of Michael's beautiful Pilsen loft, where he and Cameron do most of their work. The apartment was conveniently set up with lights because Michael's wife is conveniently a photographer, which was a major bonus. The place is crammed with awesome visuals; shelves full of electronics and spare parts and drawers labeled with things I've never heard of. It made for a great bunch of Instagram shots (omg btw follow us #thebigideashow)
|Nothing important about this. Just a sweet-ass astronaut helmet|
|Michael, hard at work moving clamps around on nails.|
As you can tell, this amount of awesomeness was almost too much to bear. Just when we thought it couldn't get much better, Michael busted out HOMEMADE BEER. Here's the CO2 tank, which looks like some sort of freakishly cute animal on, like, Adventure Time:
|I'll name him Steven.|
FYI, it took me two days and about seven thousand page re-loads to write this entry. And still, nuttin. That must be one long-ass queue.
And in the meantime, check out Unatronics...
And Cameron's band, When Clouds Attack.
