And another contest. Now from GM. I had an idea which I wanted to play with so it was perfect for that. Fun summer so far! hopefully it will stay this way.  When I started thinking about it at some point decided that I really wanted to do a watercolor project and this could be a good fit for it. Tremendously enjoyed and super glad that did it. Oh here is the link to it:

Finally submitted my crazy entry for local motors Terra Prix 2085 competition. Was fun working on it at night after work at work))) interesting experience. I think I was strongly inspired by motorcycles even though I'm not sure if it comes across in the end. Fire ants came later when I read an article in Popular Science about fire ants locking onto each other to form almost fabric that can float. I think this opens a lot of possibilities even in architecture. I had tons of ideas that have not used just to simplify the whole concept. Wanted to make cabin of the truck eject in case of emergence. Also would have been cool to show inflatable wings collapse. Actually there is a company that is already playing with this idea. Oh yeh, living module! I wish I had more time to explore that. Definitively ran out of time. So anyway that was fun and excellent summer project.
Check it out at Local Motors Web Site and Please VOTE!

Was ready to submit my entry last night but turned out Local Motors extended the deadline for another week. First I wasn't  happy about it at all but now I'm thinking more time to make it better, why not?
