CNN REPORTS:
Editor’s Note: Doug Campbell is the founder of Syyn Labs, a radical, creative collective based in downtown Los Angeles. Be sure to check out CNN The Next List’s profile on Syyn Labs this Sunday at 2pm

By Doug Campbell, Special to CNN

Would they be cool with us launching a rubber chicken into Space?”

A group of excitable characters are volleying ideas around in a gritty but colorfully decorated warehouse. A disco-starfish stands sentry next to a bear wearing a fez. A giant banana and a stuffed monkey hang from the ceiling. A conversation is underway.

“We can do it with fluid dynamics, by tinting layers of oils as they react to the data.”

“Thermal imaging should give us an accurate read of the audiences facial temperatures…”

“Either way, we should use robots… and the paint cannon.”

The brainstorming session resembles a dream in which Salvador Dali is teaching a class at the MIT Media Lab and everyone has ADHD. But this is real. And this is work. And this happens almost every day here at Syyn Labs.

CNN REPORTS: “CNN’s “The Next List” recently took a trip to Syyn Labs in Los Angeles. It’s a creative and technological collective that we will feature on our weekly show, which airs on Sunday at 2 p.m. ET. While we were there, we met Dan Busby, a physicist, artist and tinkerer – who also turned a Triumph Spitfire into an electric car.

We had a quick chat with Busby about his homemade “Electric Triumph.” You can see a video of him showing it off above. Below is an edited transcript of our conversation. And don’t forget to check Syyn Labs out on CNN this Sunday at 11am PT.”

We’re excited for this Sunday’s “The Next List” episode!

CNN reports: “You’ll never meet another group of people like the folks at Syyn Labs. They’re an interactive art collective with an edge. They are self-described geeks and nerds and call themselves a drinking group with an art problem. Together, they create extraordinary art, commercials and videos that look practically impossible to execute. Cars bungee jumping off shipping containers an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine set to music created by an organ made entirely from cars.

What’s especially unique about Syyn Labs is this: its people. They’ve got a fire-eating roboticist, a few physicists, a molecular chef, a heavy machine operator who is also their resident pirate, programmers and builders of all kinds. And most of the members of Syyn Labs have a flair for the dramatic. They’re circus performers, musicians, fire dancers and ukulele players. It’s this unique combination of eclectic innovators that earns Syyn Labs a spot on “The Next List” this week.”

Watch CNN at 11am PT on Sunday to see the full 30-minute profile of Syyn Labs.

FROM CNN: (See article here…)

“Everyone knows the host of CNN’s The Next List, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, is a multi-talented individual. He’s a neurosurgeon, a television show host, an author and scuba diver. But now you can pencil in ‘fire eater.’ Yes, you read it correctly, fire eater.

Out in L.A. filming a profile on the highly creative artist collective Syyn Labs Dr. Gupta had the opportunity of sampling a fiery feast presented to him by Eric Gradman, a lead engineer.  Hardly a stranger to extreme challenges Dr. Gupta took to fire eating like an pro, extinguishing the flames in a single gulp.

Stay tuned to CNN’s The Next List, airing Sundays at 2 P.M. E.T. on CNN, to see more with Dr. Sanjay Gupta. And coming soon we’ll have an extraordinary show on the eclectic bunch who make up Syyn Labs.”

Question: What do you get when you combine a whole lot of chocolate and brilliant engineering skills? Answer: A Choco-tabulator. That’s the visually scrumptious new monster machine that WONKA just rolled out in Times Square. It’s 16 feet wide, 8 feet tall, and constructed with 16,000 pieces of chocolate. And wait for it…it creates 3D golden tickets. And ready? If you buy a Wonka bar that contains a Golden Ticket, you’ll get paid $100,000 to eat Wonka chocolate for a day. Can you say mmmm-mmmm?
