I think Jay has already done the credible prototypes.
The only reason to pour any more energy into R&D of the
PillowDome is if commerical mass production is part of
Sure, Jay and friends could knock themselves out passing
the hat, gathering materials, and designing a whole new
version with some more kinks worked out, and there'd be
a web page and people would say "gee that's cool". And
then? We'd be right where we are now.
The next move is towards commercialization and mass
production, perhaps with an intermediate prototyping phase
tied to Hollywood's movie making (props = real working
versions, not fakes or phoney special effects).
Jay has done his part, done the pioneering. I don't think
sitting around waiting for him to jump through all those
hoops again is a good use of time -- least of all his.
He'd probably enjoy a chance to star in the movie phase
