E.O.W CROSSOVER!!! - IDW #218 /EOW #198 Merfolk Colony
Topic: Merfolk Colony
Deadline: Sunday, November 4
Find the IDW thread here:
We have a special crossover and partner edition of Industrial Design of the Week and EOW this week. There are a few things that are a bit different this time round- this will be a 2 person partner round. Each team must submit to both IDW and EOW.
Merfolk Colony: As an advanced underwater culture, they have created many intriguing items to help them in their day to day lives, and to help them understand our world. Your task is to show 2 of any of the following technologies:
A) Earthnet Research Station- a mer and human joint floating research vessel/platform/station/pod. This was created to help bridge the gap of knowledge between the terrestrial world and the aquatic, as well as taking advantage that multiple viewpoints can give to other fields of research.
B) Farm Drone- Crops such as seaweeds and fish are important underwater crops. Huge areas of kelp forests and spawning corrals exist around the world and are tended by agricultural drones.
C) Underwater Ambulance- A fast and stable carrier which transports the injured to a medical care facility.
D) Tide Power Generator- The never ending movement of water as caused by the Moon is a completely renewable and environmentally safe power safe that is accessible everywhere. These generators come in a variety of sizes for different purposes.
E) Land Prosthesis- A vehicle for the Mer body that allows brief visits on land primarily in order to deal with terrestrial folk. These are key for trade and diplomatic visits, though that by no means is the limit of their use.
Please note again that this is a 2 person partner round! Each team must submit to both IDW and EOW. Teams submitting to only one or the other will not be taken to poll. As such, the names of both partners must be on the final entries even if only one partner worked on that specific image.
