    IDW 0022: Assassination Droid

    IDW 0022: Assassination Droid

    Topic: Assassination Droid

    Background: In the year 3124, Emperor Vladimir II has succeeded his highly successful father, Vladimir I. However, instead of using his vast armies to protect and expand the human empire, he's taken the opportunity to wield ultimate power; holding the empire in an iron grip, oppressing the human race. The people need him dead. Design a droid to provide Vlad II with a suitable end.


    Brief:

    1. Design an assassination droid.

    2. The assassination functionality should be hidden (or the droid itself) as security around Vlad II is tight.


    Deadline: Saturday 11th November
    Research shows Industrial Design of the Week is addictive.
    Come get your fix.

    Spes

    The scientists had made Vladimir II invulnerable, the technology they provided made assassination impossible, nothing could penetrate the shields, laser grids force fields, body guards and surveillance, and even if they could get past the security, advanced medical techniques allowed for almost total destruction of the human body to be repaired.

    IDW 0022: Assassination Droid

    SPES, Latin for hope, was what Fawkes, Vladimir II's Chief Scientist, came up with, obviously he needed technology that couldn’t be found or countered, a droid that wasn't even there, and then to be able to cause Vladimir II to cease to be.

    SPES uses dimensional physics, it floats around scanning the environment for its target, 'jumping' constantly into and out of this dimension, avoiding detection and any from of barrier, when the 18" high droid finds its target it 'jumps' inside of the targets body, embedding the razor sharp shards through the internal organs, once embedded SPES makes one final 'jump' into another dimension with the impalled corpse attached, removing any possibility of recovery.

    Wow. Now that's what I call a creative concept. Can't say I'm a huge fan of the image though. It's kind of hard to see what it really looks like. Maybe putting it on a white or gray background would help. I can almost envision one of those super high tech clean rooms with the shiny white walls and floor. Anyway, it's a hella awesome concept!

    Hey, I just read on Wikipedia, that the term "droid" was actually something George Lucas invented when writing Star Wars! He used 'droid as short for android (human like robots in sience fiction). I guess the apostrophy was dropped and a new word was there.

    silent killer

    With nano technology finally perfected, and many industrialists tired of Vladimir II's iron fist ruling the masses, have come together to form what will become the downfall of his rule...the new technology combined with a silent killer, as it was known in the early 2000's will bring Vladimir to his death...once released the carrier has only one thing on its mind...blood...and with the gene code of Vladimir running through its senses, it is only a matter of time before the release takes place...even if the carrier is swatted as it bites, the infection will have already taken place...then there is only death as the nanos eat away at the lining of the blood vessels, organs and finally the brain, filling the inegmatic ruler with his own blood, until he bursts from the inside out....

    I have not being drawing for a long time, to much work (restaurant)

    But I will do my best
    The idea is that part of a chessboard becomes a robot (sort of like the rover on mars), and can inject poison in its victim.

    A slight change next week

    As you may have noticed, Oblio's been trying to promote the 3D area by running a monthly ortho challenge in CHOW followed by a 3D challenge. As industrial design is so perfectly suited to orthographics, and many of the entries have them anyway, next week's topic will require an ortho and I won't be accepting 3D entries - you'll have to leave those to the 3d challenge. I'll try to come up with a suitable topic - probably a vehicle. Please feel free to add your own comments, I figured it wouldn't be a big change, but what do you guys think?

    my opinion is that takes out of this forum folks like D-Holm, who think through their modeling. Limiting those folks (really or anyone as this forum in the past has struggled for entries, although not recently due to your deligence), may not be fair to them. I think how they go about creating for the purpose of a concept shouldnt be limited. I understand the want to help Oblio ( I actually have been busy and had not noticed that forum), but limiting some one else doesnt seem the way to go. Just my thought.

    I personally think that not allowing 3d entries is perfectly reasonable. I don't want to sound harsh to those who have been entering their models, however this site is "conceptart.org."

    Our ideas come before the modeling stage, we give our concepts to the modelers.

    In my opinion there are various reasons that the 3d sections of this forum haven't taken off, because there are several other sites (ie. cgtalk.com), that are much better suited for those who want to pursue 3D.

    But I definitely think that Ortho's are a good idea, but not every week...there should be a mix between a nice final drawing/paint and good clean ortho's
