Katsuhiro Otomo on conceptships

My favorite artist... Katsuhiro Otomo. Can't wait to see Akira in HD. Black and white image from Akira club by Dark Horse.
















Katsuhiro Otomo conceptships weekly header #13 May 30th - June 6th, 2008

I worked super hard on Otomo's part. I made the animated header using Adobe Aftereffects and Flash... I applied a position.wiggle expression to each individual letter to make 'em jump a bit. When Adobe integrates Flash and AE a little better... Pffffffffft... Watch out!

Otomo starts off comic book week... Betta stay tuned in! Thanks:]

Conceptships news

Please tell me you've seen THIS. Here is the article.



The first thing I thought of when I saw this was... How cool would it be to combine this concept with the Virgin galactic model. Fly the rocket man to the edge of the stratosphere by balloon or other vehicle and then launch the man from there in to space via his rocket wing. Individual manned space launch. Crazy.

Check out my similar looking concept flash loop done for the EON challenge on CGSociety.

In other news... The Phoenix lander touches down on Mars. Yet another lander makes the trip to Mars and lands successfully.



It would be nice to see some different terrain though. I know the window for a safe landing is small but it would be nice to see Olympus Mons or The Valles Marineris in the background there.



Still, an amazing achievement. Landing it with rockets now instead of bouncing it.

I've got some great stuff on the way this week. Stay tuned... Later!

Commercial airliner fuselage ejector mechanism concept

My girlfriend was leaving the Czech republic on July 19th 2007, the same day that the terrible Sao Paulo commercial airliner accident happened that killed 200 people. I thought it was a pretty crazy coincidence since commercial airplane crashes are so rare.

Though this probably would not pertain to that particular accident, I've always had an idea for a commercial airline fuselage ejector.

It seems that the majority of passengers seem to parish due to the flammable jet fuel that runs through the aircraft upon impact and current research seems to focus on making the fuel less flammable.

My idea focuses on ejecting the passengers and cargo/baggage away from the dangerous part of the aircraft based on the single engine plane on parachute concept, pictured below.



The above picture also shows a diagram of how/where fuel is stored in a commercial airliner.

Below is my concept "animated" in Flash.


1. A routine flight
2. An engine fire erupts! (This could be any malfunction or perhaps even an act of terrorism).
3. The passenger/cargo part of the airplane ejects...
4. Separating itself from the compromised part of the aircraft.
5. Parachutes open and the fuselage lands safely on the ground or in water. There could maybe be inflatables lining the bottom of the ejected portion of the fuselage to act as an impact cushion and/or a flotation device.

Has anyone ever seen this idea or concept before? Please leave a link to any related articles in the comments section. Thanks!

George Lucas turns 64!

Today is Goerge Lucas' birthday.

I wonder how much of this art work or even this blog for that matter would exist if it wasn't for this man.
Thanks for your inspirational vision and happy birthday from conceptships!
