Dome Kit is a fascinating project that consists of both the development of the software and the building of real-world domes. The Dome Kit project aims to make geodesic structures available to all. The project is currently seeking funding on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform, so if you're intrigued (especially after watching the video pitch) you can easily donate money.

The Dome Kit building experience is one that emphasizes community and collaboration. The structures can be used at music festivals, in your backyard and anywhere in between. The software helps you figure out the complicated math behind getting your geodesic structure just right, and it's really intuitive to use. These structures are aesthetically pleasing objects that would work well in any context.
