    Okay, just going to shoot some ideas out there. Sorry if these were mentioned before.

    Restaurant Cleaner-Some kind of operating system/droids that clean for the cooks and chefs.

    Demolition Bot- Inspired a lot from the demolition machine in I-ROBOT.

    Spy Drone- Kind of along the lines of the cipher machines the military are working on and using -http://psychicspy.com/cypher1.jpg

    Futuristic Junk Yard Compacter

    Highway Builder-inspired a lot by the terrible construction job on our highway here.

    With only one week to do the topics why not build a specific driver into the design brief. This way a research component becomes required and final solutions are less dependent on some optimistic future technology.

    "Fun" topics:

    Redesign batman's tool belt/kit

    Instruments for the band _________(choose a group with a strong brand identity: kiss, tool, NIN, The Beetles, etc.)

    Powertools in the style of _________(architectural era; mannerist, gothic, bauhaus)

    Dukes of Hazard vehicle redesign(pick a different time period or setting)

    Siberian(or any extreme climate) UPS delivery truck


    More "serious" topics:

    As the hummer replaced the jeep, what will replace the hummer(considering current military requirements, and environmental issues)

    Wristwatch made in _________(design reflecting a region or country with an identifiable tradition of craft and/or aesthetic)

    Interesting you should mention this. British military is currently in the very beginning stages of designing a new vehicle which will replace the Land Rover as a backbone military vehicle. They want something stronger and a bit bigger that can withstand modern warfare wile still carrying fully geared squad dies efectively (ie surprise attacks, roadside bombs, ambush, urban conflict etc)

    **or at least so i imagine, i couldn't possibly say whether any of this were true as it is entirely my own conjecture and i nor any of my relatives have been privy to any MOD demonstrations regarding said project, opening up the form for ideas to British industries. ever. honest. i know nothing. don't lock me up. please**

    Right, my twopenny worth...

    Did Hideyoshi's Medic droid get done yet? think this is a vey interesting idea with plenty of colutions that could easily catch people's imaginations.

    Yoitisi: coming back to the idea of doing sets of concepts, how about grouping things by month. So four weeks/briefs around a central theme? I know coming up with these themes won't be easy, but thought it might make a good way to work it without people getting bored.

    As for my own ideas...

    1)
    Sports/Military/family/cargo (etc) submersible Thinking of an alternate or future reality where parts of civilisation have moved underwater. What would the vehicles look like once we moved away from typical exploaration submersibles and military submarines?
    Submissions could all be focused around a single theme, or people could pick their own ideas.
    What would the propulsion be? power source? how would you get in and out? etc

    k, so i dont have any more just yet, but i might be back...

    Maieth: I sort of incorporated Hideyoshi's idea for a medic droid into the topic of IDW 50: Maintenance Droid. If I feel like doing a droid again, I think I'll have to find something that will set it apart from that particular challenge in which case a simple Medic Droid is too similar. Thanks for adding your thoughts though

    Actually, I've been playing with the idea of doing a round of IDW about a sort of plant for a while now. I'm not sure if this would strictly fit in this activity though, but I've seen people try it in COW where it is not allowed and EOW is more about creating a whole environment instead of 'designing' a plant as such. I think it'd fit in here, as plants can be sort of designed, but I'm not sure if you people agree on that

    Here are a few wiki articles

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Von_Neu...al_constructor
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_assembler
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_goo

    A universal constructor / Von Neuman machine could be a good topic, some very interesting designs could come out of this

    monster powered ship- can be powered by squids, sea monsters, or something more exotic

    pyromaniac bot- close quarters robot that utilizes fire for attacks

    chemical warfare combat suit- sealed, balistic, armor for protection against acid, poison gas, radioactive fallout, and biological agents.

    Ok, I already PMed you with this idea Yoi, but since you told me to post it here, why not.

    Take a normal challenge, like a Missile Launcher with Missile, but instead of just letting everyone go on there way with whatever idea, do something like the last challenge. But this time, give about 50 small reference pictures, from syringes to an old winner of a challenge, and let the people choose from 3-5 of those pictures to come up with something. This is kind of like when you get a job, and they say they want something like such and such with some random shit thrown in there. If you need help gathering pictures, ill be able to help find some random pieces of junk. Got about 5 billion reference pictures of junk laying about on my PC.

    Yoitisi,the Starfighter and the Carrier stuff are really cool to me,but if u continue strictly into that direction,like every week the same three pics or stuff, there will be stagnation(at least for me) one day.please make some breaks some time.

    but on the other hand, it would be nice, to do like a whole fleet for IDW 100...maybe with that reference pics Digital Blacksmith had talked about.
    like do.... a carrier,a battlecruiser, a destroyer,a fregate,a gunboat,a specialist ship and a sum smaller snubfighters like a bomber,fighter and interceptor,maybe shuttle,blablubb.
    maybe a decision would be necessary,which kind of ships are needed.

    i personally think 4-5 solid weeks of drawing similar things is just the stretch many people need

    A bomber/scout would be fun to do. Or maybe we could do solar weaponry, like satellite laser blasters, death stars, such and such.
