Once assembled, the digital rocket is then translated as a physical sculpture at Sachs’ studio in Lower Manhattan.

Sachs’ studio team has announced a new limited-edition Rocket Factory Fanny Pack is available exclusively to Rocket Factory NFT holders. The multi-faceted bag is made out of Dyneema® which is a stronger, steel waterproof and lightweight non-woven composite fabric.

The primary dump pocket was crafted to accommodate a standard letter size clipboard, notebook, iPad or 13” MacBook. Other highlights include a quick-release buckle for donning, doffing and easy tensioning with a waist belt to match as well as shoulder strap equipped with a self-ejecting buckle.
