All The Science I Don’t Understand


The Rocket Project, created for Sony by 180/Los Angeles is world’s most literal product launch. Eight high school science students are being given Sony VAIO CW series laptops to design and build a high power rocket. The rocket will be 25 feet tall, weigh over 500 pounds and be capable of reaching the stratosphere. It launches in April from Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, an event that will be shown live online and on Sony’s billboard in Times Square.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative direction at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
