Red Bull Flugtag Video

The Ruckus Test Team (my bike racing team) wanted ever-so-desperately to get into Rud Bull Flugtag (google it). The team has a lot of talent to work with: we have engineers and manufacturers with expertise in rocketry, bicycles, vehicles and ultralight product design. We were a shoe-in–or so we thought. But how could we prove our abilities to Red Bull? That's where I came in. 

I decided to commemorate Ruckus's successful 2012 launch of a hot dog into space with a hot dog-themed homage to 2001: A Space Odyssey, leveraging the Ruckus team's expertise in engineering and R&D. Now I'll sit back and put my feet on the keyboard while the engineers figure out how to build an actual flying hot dog!
