^ That was my worry! Having not heard anything from it this year, I was afraid maybe we had seen the last of it. But this gives the project some new hope! =)

Just looked on the website and there's no mention of it being back this year. :cry: It looks like they've been busy with other marketing campaigns, but nothing going on this season. Too bad. It really was one of the coolest things ever!

Hopefully they bring it back in the next few years. It was a lot of fun to control the claw from home even after they stopped sending out the prizes.

Fond memories. Winning a few times after the prizes ran out, stalking other TPR members, convos with random people, playing around with my avatar, and even the extra fun this thread provided.

^^Robb, never thought to tell you, but my brother was there with the claw in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. Verizon hired Real Art to bring it down and set it up. They bought new wraps for the machine, but same "bones" as before. I asked him the other day about it, and he said no one has rented it lfor Christmas, but they probably wont be running it again. It probably wont be around again unless someone rents it out again. On a side note, Real Art has bought a satellite to send into space and my brother is currently working on that. It will send data out that can be received. Any "geeks" out there interested, I can get you the info.

PS-If you want to send them a message, you can actually Teletype a message to them and see it printed out, just like the olden days!! http://realart.com/contact.php
Who was that again?

RIP Santa Claw! Would be nice to have someone corporate sponsor it each year, so we wouldn't have to wonder.

I wonder if it's just sitting there if we could work out a lower price rental and get it for TPR! Robb and I could fill it will balls of crap and it would be awesome!
