    IDW 0015: Personal Security Unit

    Topic: Personal Security Unit

    Background: Civilisation is starting to crumble. As the world becomes more unstable, corruption, intrigue and backstabbing become common place. The rich and powerful have learnt to be weary of even their closest colleagues. No longer fulling trusting their bodyguards, they look for new solutions to keep them out of harm's way and they're willing to pay a high price for it.


    Brief:

    1. It must reduce the possibility of successful assassination attempts on the target.

    2. It may augment existing systems to achieve this.

    3. It should give them as much freedom as possible to go about their business - what's the point of power if you can't use it?


    Deadline: Friday 22nd September (2 weeks from when this was first posted)

    Please post ideas and suggestions for in the TOPIC SUGGESTION thread. What sort of topics do you want? I enjoyed the background that Form introduced into his topics and was going to try to continue with this, but how does everyone else feel?

    At the moment I'll try to keep the topics fairly open so it doesn't discourage people from entering who don't want to design a particular thing.

    The background is what makes them interesting. It puts a date, context and the kind of ambiance to put on the piece.

    Unfortunatly for myself, not being good enough to actualy set a mood, I m still having a hard time posting something that I feel proud enough.

    I still have to practice a lot =)

    So for now I ll try to put at least very clean hand sketch

    ( I've also been working on my industrial design portfolio, not the concept art but the real life product design so I wasnt able to participate as much as I would like to )


    As for the subject, is it in the line of a mecha unit or way smaller as in bulletproof vest force field ???

    It's intentionally left open. It doesn't even have to physically protect the person, it could remove the "will to kill" in the people surrounding him.

    Here we go:
    I don't know whether people think that maybe it needs some labeling - at the moment I think it would look too busy.

    Come on let's get this moving! Deadline is Tuesday people!
    All you have to design is a mech ... or an armoured vehicle ... or cool body armour.

    Final
    IDW 0015: Personal Security Unit

    Concept: Flip Industries, being the communist bastards that they are, have created a PSU to help keep 'their' leaders in good health. Arm attachments give the user some (limited) protection while heightening their senses through drugs provided intravenously. Air born drugs projected from the shoulders are used to dull the strength, dexterity and senses of those around the user. Even against a skilled attacker the PSU provides an unfair advantage. The cruel twist to this product is that in order to keep control over their leaders Flip Industries has made the intravenous concoction highly addictive; withdrawal symptoms generally causing death in the user or leaving them in a 'damaged' state.

    I got something Flip. It'll show up tomorrow. I've just been doing a little deadline triage between this and a couple other activities.

    Fishy

    WIP…..

    A School of 20 or more bio-mechanical, genetically engineered, flying killer Piranha, they hover over head, flying around the person being guarded, checking for assassins, criminals and booby traps with their advanced sensors. When a 'target' is discovered they attack in a frenzy chewing and biting the target to oblivion, this means very little if any collateral damage. Intimidation is obviously better than confrontation so the 'Piranha's are designed to still look vicious, mean and intimidating as they slowly circle, above the protected. They can follow the owner anywhere and can be ordered to hover else where in polite company, such as under the chair or up in the ceiling.

    But lets be honest, its very unlikely to be un-WIP'd anytime soon

    Referring now to Figure 1, the Rear View Helmet (1) can be seen which is equipped with booms (2) attached thereto in the parietal region of the lower rim. Convex mirrors (3) are rotatably attached to the booms (2) by means of attachment braces (4). Rotor motors (5) at the junction between the boom (2) and the attachment brace (4) permit the convex mirrors (3) to be turned so they have been oriented toward specific objects. A first chin strap (6) is attached to the lower rim of the Rear View Helmet (1) at a point proximal to the junction of the Rear View Helmet (1) and the boom (2). A second chin strap (7), adapted to attach securely to the first chin strap (6) is attached proximal to the junction between the other boom and the Rear View Helmet. In the preferred embidiment the second chin strap (7) attaches to the first chin strap (6) by means of a buckle (8). A motion detector (9) is attached to the rear portion of the Rear View Helmet (1) and connected by an electric circuit to a control computer (not shown in Figure 1) which in turn orients the rotor motors (5) so that the convex mirrors (3) provide the wearer with a view of any moving object behind the wearer.

    I'm going to extend the deadline to this Friday (22nd) because of the lack of entries, particularly of the non-WIP variety. Hopefully this will mean more (finished) entries.

    arttorney > in that time I'd suggest reworking your piece, you need to put more work into both the design and the final image for me to take it to poll. Looking at your sketchbook I think you're capable of more.
