In the quest for reaching ever more extreme environments and setting out on ever more delicate expeditions there is an ongoing development of ever more capable Moonhouse models. The Moonhouse #X-series are the prototypes of tomorrow’s Moonhouse models. Before the X-series the prototype models were part of the nominal series. Examples are the plastic #2.18 and the negative #1.5. The #X.1 is the first of the moonhouses made from clay. The #X.1 is of similar size as the #3-series and has negative bouyancy in water, meaning that it will sink to the bottom. The #X.2 is similar to #X.1 as it is made from the same material but where the X.1 is comparable in size to the #3-series, the #X.2 is comparable in size to the #2-series. The #X.2 also features a a base magnet making it attachable to magnetic surfaces.
Any prototype has to be tested and Moonhouse #X.2 is no exception. On May 12 endavoured on its first expedition, with Emil Vinterhav to Konradsberg. See the results below.
