    IDW 0012: Peacetime Transport

    Topic: Peacetime Transport

    Background: In an extremely unlikely, yet ideal future, there is no war. There is no large scale dissention between political parties, governments, or nations. There has been a significant paradigm shift which has lead to a cooperative global society focused on sustainable ecology.

    New technology has enabled small scale duplication of raw materials through atom 'breeding' - meaning that many of the crises involving resource scares are no longer an issue, and production of material goods can continue as before.

    In this secure peacetime, attentions are turned to quality of life. Within this is a greater appreciation by all people, of the power of beauty, and a greater understanding of aesthetics. This has led to a backwards shift in trends to older classical periods of decadence, decoration and art.


    Brief:Your task is to design a vehicle of any kind (land, sea, air) for this new age. Technology is advanced, and so is an appreciation of classical design/art/methods. There is no need for any design to counterract aggression - the overwhelming majority of earths vehicles are now designed for luxury and pleasure.

    To clarify, one example could be a car based on art deco. The period is roughly 50 years advanced - 2050 or so.

    Have fun! Go nuts



    Deadline: Once again, a fortnight is about right i think.15 June.

    reminds me of star trek when picard said "economics in the 24th century are a little different". and lulu (or was it lucy) said "you mean you don't get paid?"

    Just a very quick WIP/sketch, I've become addicted to the Industrial Design of the Week, and after my failed initial attempt at domination , have returned to the fray!

    Too long have we been promised flying cars, but now in the year 2056, well we still don't have flying cars but we do have anti-gravity hover car/boat/cruisers… The Classic Duesenberg Car Company of the early 20th Century 1913-1937, considered to be the height of opulence and luxury is revived to create luxury anti-gravity cruisers for the new socialites. The cruisers hover 3-10' off of the surface and can reach speeds of up to 200mph…. Not a lot of thought (well none actually) into this one just having some fun

    Looking forward to seeing the rest of the posts from you guys…

    An enormous airship, built to allow people to tour the entire world. A floating hotel to see the beauty of the earth from the sky.

    Actually, I am thinking about a huge air-pleasure boat which takes some references to the 19century structure for monumental winter gardens and also "jardin à la française" you can find in Versailles landscape. Still thinking about the final image and to some details of the design like scale, propulsion which will be in those 4 circles and about all the structure which care this enormeous park. A lots of "clichés" mixed together in order to obtain this historic style. During the Renaissance, architecture took his references in ancient greec civilization so I presume in 2050 or 2100, we shall take some referencies in the 19 century ) (sorry for my bad english, still not confortable with it for my descriptions)
