    IDW - DEEP: Undersea Utopia
    Topic: Deep Sea Technology

    For this grand joined activities challenge you are asked to explore the imaginary world of the deep seas. The topic is specifically designed to keep the results as broad as possibly, as the focus of this challenge is for you to come up with a wide variety of ideas and concepts.

    In this special round of IDW it is your task to fill out the world of the Undersea Utopia with all kinds of things that relate to Industrial Design. This may be technology like transport for the inhabitants, but also sunken ships or exploration vehicles from the surface or props like sunken containers on the bottom of the ocean…basically, anything that can be called technology, props, or items, in one form or another.

    Instead of the normal one entry per person, this time we want to see a variety of work. In the end, you will be judged on the body of work and not just on how well the final rendering of your design looks. Ideas and concepts are what this round is about. The amount of work invested in each idea or concept is up to you; 5 developed concepts with sketches to back them up, 100 thumbnails categorized on different subjects, go wild. In the end, bundle it into one image/submission and post it in the Final Burning Thread that will be put up a little later (yes, a first for IDW). Craftsmanship and presentation are important. Even though you will be judged on the ideas, you should still do a great job!

    The results will be judged by both a public poll and a judging panel, as there are going to be awesome prizes for the winners!

    Brief:
    1. Sketch, draw, design and doodle anything that comes to mind for the topic DEEP: Undersea Utopia in terms of stuff; Vehicles, breathing gear, submarines, sunken containers etc.
    2. This time, focus on generating and presenting your ideas. While one sketch can sometimes be a hit, usually you'll need to work initial ideas out a bit further to come to more finalised concept. For this challenge, both are fine. You will be judged on the whole body of work, not the final render of a concept alone.
    3. Go wild...

    Deadline: June 30 - 11:59pm

    Update 06/05/08

    Sounds like a great idea to all the activities going at something together. Hope I can produce something to do it justice.

    eStudios - work in progess shots should likely go in this thread and then there'll be a 'Final Burning' thread (not in existance yet) for then finished pieces. Doesn't normally happen like that for IDW but if you look at the other activities they work that way. It's usually best if you keep a single main post to post all your progress works into so everything stays ordered.

    PS - and welcome onboard...

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Basic idea sketches - thinking about settings and themes...

    (i) big sub and undersea installations (maybe a bit towards EOW)
    (ii) manganese nodule harvester & hot vent facility...

    Update 06/05/08 - new sketches
    (iii) Black-smoker extraction mining rigs sketches
    (iv) Black-smoker extraction rigs detail

    eStudios: D-Holme is right: post any work in progress shot/images in this thread so people can react or comment on it. The final submission (all images you want to put in there gathered into on image and one post) can be put into the Final Burning thread which will be posted later on. Have fun

    Cool , deep sea tech :-D

    a simple graphic or logo, like those military arrow ranks
    that we can include on the designs, can help a little
    to bring it all together as a whole undersea society, or military,
    you know the rebels , the empire . . . etc etc
    even if we all make different stuff.

    A.I. Mecha design for DEEP

    Sub MODE designed for exploration on deepsea,
    Mecha MODE used for construction inside
    Utopia undersea city, this Mecha type
    can be modded into a military weapon (wave Camo Paint)
    attaching weapons to the side panels

    One man sub suits
    both have 2 arms, but removed
    one to show the design of the main body

    Basically these capsules are floating
    outside the undersea city, if somebody
    runs out of oxygen they swim and enter underneath
    and works like a little cave with a long supply of air

    The shark shape kite thingy is to keep other fishes from getting near.

    DEEP Undersea Mecha, the back fin attachment
    is used for more storage and be able to travel
    outside the city from district to district,
    this model is used for maintenance, like the
    other ones can be upgraded using a different back fin
    with more arms instead of storage space

    Also an A.I. specimen can perform most task by itself
    but can be remotely controlled for special
    repairs that require human judgement

    June 10

    A.I. Mecha , design for patrol around
    the utopia deepsea city, end of fins
    can be used to attach upgrades,
    like ammo, weapons, armour, or fuel.

    So this guy, incapacitates the undersea Mechs
    basically he/she goes and stabs the machines
    giving them an electroshock, disabling them,
    i dont think they will be trashed or explode . ..
    anyway
    He has batteries in her/his waist, each one
    in a different voltage or frequency, so she/him
    can switch depending on the type and size of the mech target
    . . . . any questions regarding electricity and water ?
    . . those are . . magical electric powers :-P

    deep sea exploration suit
    back hunch serves as air supply
    and propulsion, softer material than
    metal full of nerve wires that permit
    a more organic movement to legs and arms
    even at heavy pressure depths

    IDW - DEEP: Undersea Utopia

    June 17

    This suit is used by pilots,
    it has a limited protection for high pressure
    but enough to survive,
    helmet is full of displays and sonar,
    most of navigation tools
    would always be on the pilots gear
    instead of the transportation vehicles

    June 18

    another exploring / cannon sub for Deep
    this time added a tentacle arm
    not a precision tool,
    but brings a more versatile and strong way to do some tasks.
    small arms can extend and manage tiny and delicate samples

    So what if you are running out of oxygen
    and are far from a safe capsule or the undersea city
    well you call this rescue fishes,
    using a sound distress signal

    a group of fishes will come carrying
    a shell full of air with a straw, pull the tube
    to break the seal and release the air
    just be sure to give them a treat after they save your life :-)
    and take the harness off the fish too.

    IDW - DEEP: Undersea Utopia

    June 21

    This guys are part of the maintenance fleet
    (shown here without their helmets)
    for underwater city, they would get hooked
    by one line that carries electricity and oxygen

    then connect the tools to their body armour
    and start working, welding and sealing leaks of air

    The pilot is attached to the mecha
    by magnetic shoes to the top platform.
    This Mecha is used for exploration and construction.
    the spheres go inside of rock cracks and
    then expand and open a path.
    also used to move big objects or salvage materials/ lost ships.

    Most energy is steam based, absorbing water and boiling
    it in it's engines to generate pressure and movement

    robo that's a great idea. if i get the time i'll try my hand at some graphics.
    i suggest everyone do the same if they want and then we can decide which one to use
