Background: In 2080, several major terrorist incidents were recorded. At first thought to be of a political nature, they were found to be the work of right wing religious fanatics. Bearing all the hallmarks of terrorist activity in the early 21st century, the attacks consisted of a coordinated network of strategic car bombings and train bombings spread over areas of maximum effect. These indications remeniscent of terrorist activities in the middle east were soon identified as religious acts, however the true impetus behind them was not clear until one of the activists was killed in the process of a bombing. During the autopsy, a tattoo was discovered across his left scapula. It read... 'Thinker'
Brief:Your task is to create an automated machine capable of neutralising a suspected bomber. There are several limitations to consider.
1. The targets are live, intelligent human beings in a heightened state of alertness. Their awareness of their surroundings will be keen. The machine must be able to approach the target without alerting suspicion (whether through concealment or inconspicuosity).
2. The target is assumed to be carrying live explosives. The machine must be capable of suppressing an explosion in the event that the explosives are detonated.
3. Due to the tense nature of the political situation in a world that has been quickly transformed from ideal to dystopic, many people will be falsely identified as terrorist targets. The machine must be able to suppress the explosive and the suspect using NON LETHAL means.
How you, the designer, approach this problem, will have a big effect on the outcome of your design.
Deadline: 2 weeks again. I will be in Europe when this is due so I will find someone to take over.
