The playing surface, the high speed pressure sensor underneath it, and the high bandwidth DSP computer that analyzes the data are the end results of a three-year design process. There are no off-the-shelf sensor parts used—the sensing hardware was entirely developed in-house.
As a result, nothing else feels like it. The Soundplane is made entirely in the USA. Its body is milled out of hardwood sustainably harvested in the USA, and made rigid with a black-anodized aluminum back. We assemble, tune and test the instruments by hand here in Seattle.
All of the subassemblies and circuit boards are also made in the Seattle area. Local manufacturing throughout the process allows us to keep quality high and our transportation footprint low. The Soundplane is a true force sensor. Another key requirement is that the plane be cheaper to fly per hour than the F Joint Strike Fighter or A One of the three planes picked for this summer's fly-off is the AT-6 Wolverine.
The two-person Wolverine features new engines delivering nearly 50 percent more horsepower, a glass cockpit, 7 wing hardpoints for weapons and sensors, color and IR cameras, a laser designator, laser illuminator, and laser rangefinder.
The A Super Tucano is a Brazilian-designed aircraft used extensively around the world. Like the AT-6, the Super Tucano is also a two-seat turboprop aircraft, and aviation authority Robert Dorr posted a detailed comparison of the two planes last year. We did go hiking in the Atacama Desert one afternoon when we tried to climb up Volcano Lascar. Although it was without much success, it resulted in an excellent story of escaping pumas down the edge of a sand dune.
If you want to go trekking, again I would strongly recommend that you download maps. In terms of camping overnight, be aware that there is no wood for building a fire so you will need a cooking stove. Although we were told at the time that visiting Salar de Tara was among the things to do in the Atacama Desert that you can only experience with a tour, it is actually possible to reach this huge stretch of salt flats and lagoons using your own vehicle.
I would recommend that you speak to the owner of your hostel and see if they can provide you with a map for how to get there. The owner, Edgar, is really really friendly and can help you out booking tours or with suggestions for dinner. This is a small guesthouse, not a hostal, as all rooms are private. The hostel comes with a kitchen, has an enormous patio and the staff are really friendly too.
Flights from Calama de Santiago can often be only a little bit more expensive than buses and take a tenth of the time. Compare prices on Skyscanner. You can organise for them to pick you up from your hostel if you have a flight back from Calama. Get inspired with these four Patagonia travel itineraries for short trips!
