- Also a stable and heavy structure for heavy play

- Accessible battery box withoutdisassembling the whole island, completely hidden inside the structure

- A landing mode, optionally with or without the specially designed tensegrity stand.

- A tensegrity stand that very stably supports the island in a floating position but also allows you to easily pick it up for play.

That's pretty cool. Iconic island from an iconic music video. Are you confident it'll balance?

Actually, I've built one exactly the way you see it here (colours and all). So yes, I can absolutely confirm it balances perfectly, and very much stably, I may add.

If your interested in the system: Those two chains on either side of the island connect onto 2 bars from the cloud sections left and right (you can see this in the last rendered pic). Due to the weight the island would now still flip backwards, so now you need to connect the anchor into that front cloud section, preventing the backward flip, and voilà, the island stays put in a floating position.

Is it 100% tensegrity? Don't know, but I'm pretty happy with the floating effect, even if it's maybe not 100% tensegrity.
