Daniel Robbins, Melissa Quintanilha, and Kevin Decker are three Microsoft employees who are building a submarine conning tower that they will drive across country to the Burning Man festival in the Black Rock desert of Nevada. UX designer by day, Melissa researched organic designs of small spaces as well as a good amount of research into the designs of underwater vehicles. While this land submarine cuts through the desert of Nevada, the interior will provide a calming experience along with an inviting massage table. Materials for this build come from a variety of places including pieces that were recycled from the old Microsoft Visitor's Center in Building 127.
