    IDW # 133 : Energy Gun

    IDW # 133 : Energy Gun

    Topic: Energy Gun

    Background: The Greystone Corp. has asked us here at CA.org to make up plans for TWO of their new line of weaponry with a working title of Energy Guns. You have two weeks to comply.

    Their request came in three parts:

    1) Each gun must fire a different energy. There are many types to choose from including:

    - light - magnetic - elastic
    -sound - kinetic - thermal
    -gravitational - chemical - electrical....

    ...and so on.

    2) In order to eliminate battle mistakes, each weapon must somehow clearly and visually state through design or imagery the energy used as ammo. However, they must both carry the Greystone Corp signature look (created by you) in some manner.

    3) You must include a write up revealing the method in which you envision the weapon to work. Research into energies and how they function is appreciated.

    NOTE: Although the title states gun, the weapon may be of any size, as long as it is physically movable by one person. Therefore, small cannons etc, are applicable. However, the shape must hold to the general butt end, hole end with trigger idea. If the entry misses or does not complete the brief, your entry will not be taken to poll.

    Inspiration and Info:

    Wikipedia- Energy
    Energy forms and definitions
    Highschool science/physics.


    Brief:
    1. Design and draw an Energy Gun.
    2. Follow the outline given.
    3. That's it... now draw!

    Final entries must be posted in the final thread.
    Deadline: Wednesday, August, 5
    Rounds usually close around midnight GMT.

    YES!!! I love the topic! im outta town all next week but thank God for the Two week round!
    Pixie- I love how you make specific requirements (Geystone Corp signature, 2 weapons, Portable) I think it gives us limitations to stick to the brief but also go wild with ideas.

    The Swan design reminds me of the Zat gun from Stargate.

    So here's a couple of ideas I'm working with. The big one is a type of man-portable Gauss gun, which uses electromagnetic coils wrapped around the barrel to propel a projectile forward. The other is a pistol that fires electrically-charged bullets.
