    Is anything new gonna happen in IDW?

    Coz I felt the last one sort of ventured into the realm of EOW which was probably why it didn't have more entries.

    I was trying to think of some topics and here's what I came up with. (please ignore any that have already been suggested)

    • Unorthodox weaponry (i.e. weapons used in a non standard way, or maybe unusual takes on existing weapons...)

    • Fantasy locomotive

    • Combat armor for non-humanoid shaped beings

    • Warcrawler

    • Next next-gen game console and controller.

    • Transformer (basically take a current machine and figure out how to transform it into a giant robot. Stipulations are that while you can choose a vehicle that has been made into a transformer, you must figure out a new way to complete the transformation. (i.e. You could do an F-15, but he has to transform differently than Starscream.)

    Alternately you could go the Macross route and have one vehicle that transforms into another. Plane to robot, car to submarine, that kind of stuff.

    Just a few thoughts, take 'em or leave 'em.

    I think everyone's too gung-ho on the futuristic end of ID. Why not retro-ish themes, as though taken from civilizations not as advanced as ours (or advanced in a different manner):

    steam-powered siege engines
    war zeppelins
    pack animal harnesses
    makeshift hunting supplies/weapons
    treehouses

    I like abediah's idea and put in a vote for disguised weaponry.

    Something Practical AND Cool

    Why does ID concept design have to be about robots and fantastic things? Doesn't the future have toilets too? Or window latches? These are the details that really make larger concepts shine, the little details that tell the viewer that the environment they're looking at really is fully realized and not just roughly sketched. Where are the everyday object designs that truly define life in a different world?

    Example idea... rough brief:

    How about a fire suppression/alarm system of the future/near present.

    Think about it. The system has to have alarms and warning indicators to tell people in a building that there is an emergency. It has to have suppression devices (like sprinklers, extinguishers and whatnot), and there has to be some kind of central control and monitoring system.

    Think of this as an opportunity to design a collection of useful templates that can be put to use in environment designs later down the road. Or it's an opportunity to flesh out the finer details of a concept you may already have. Designing a hospital setting for the future? What does the fire alarm (which must be in every room somewhere) look like? How about that military installation or that space dock/hangar?

    Surely, they all have a fire alarm in them and a means of dealing with fires and other emergencies. What does it look like? How does it operate?

    To me, this is real industrial design and could be really useful when fleshing out concept designs.

    How about Nano tech delivery system for biological use and for industrial use?

    Solar wind/flare capturing system?

    Automated Wine making aparatus?

    Anti-gravity transportation towers?

    Salad shooter for sea cucumbers?
    Whatever you do, don't look at my Sketchbook and Painting Thread!

    Watching alittle of "Dark City" gave me this one idea.

    Tectonic Plate Shifters- Machines that move tectonic plates under the
    Surface of planets to change land formations and environments above.

    Other ideas-

    Future Surveillance System- we’ve seen then this in plenty of movies were some camera's were floating around are drones were looking for people to spot. I wonder how everyone here would interpret that.

    Mechanical wildlife- it was impossible to preserve real-life trees so they are now replaced by mechanical one's that represent them and other wildlife that is now long dead.

    Futuristic Harley Davison's or Chopper's- Yeah baby!

    Transporters- Star Trek anyone? I know it's not an original idea but I'd thought I'd throw it in there for laughs.

    Kitchen cooker- Kitchen that cooks, bakes, and makes desert for real lazy people.
