This week, Lockwood unveils the latest in firework launching technology, with their Pyrotechnic Overhead Display Interface (PODI). From a short display, to an epic fireworks extravaganza, PODI has all you need to wow your guests with ease. Choose which fireworks to launch, how many and whether to offset them with fuses, all in PODI’s simple operating system. Or if that sounds like too much work, give PODI a wave and he’ll cook something up for you and fire it away before you’ve had time to lower your waving hand.
PODI is a friendly little machine who loves attention. The more time you spend with him creating displays and setting them off, the happier he becomes and when he’s happy, PODI loves to give out rewards. Some of them are for everyone, some are just for you – spend time playing with PODI to make sure you get them all!

Rooms, doors, windows, wallpaper, flooring, ceilings, feature objects, exteriors, skies and environments — let your imagination run wild and create and store multiple apartments exactly how you want them. Machinima makers, this is perfect for you too. You are the architect with Blueprint: Home.
See you in Home!
