I’m inspired by Elon Musk and he’s rethinking our transportation future. So here’s the start of the train system I’m designing. I’ll call it the Zip Train for now.
I’ll post a full breakdown of the project soon.
Shouldn’t most art move you?
The other day sitting at the tracks waiting for the train to pass. My wife and I really enjoyed the art show that was flying by at 20 miles an hour.
This particular train had nearly every other car tagged with some kind of graffiti art. Some of the art seemed intentional while others were clearly graffiti. What I really enjoyed was was the difference in the cars and waiting to see what came next. I also noticed I didn’t mind waiting for the train. I was more entertained by is passing train cars than just being annoyed that I had to stop.
Could this be a new form of an art show hitting the road? Brands are buying ad placement on trucks, trains and planes, by skinning images and text over the whole vehicle. This could be a great way to get more artists working while helping to make industrial containers more visually appealing. Hey, maybe if the cars are placed in the right order a story could be told. Plus the entertainment level had some value for me even if it only serves the railroad company by giving me that moment to stop and smell the roses.
I think I’m looking at a future tool for Detectives. No this isn’t something new and these hack videos have been around since 2010 but I know when I first saw this video guess what came to mind besides building MODS for game engines? Crime scenes. Yeah crime scenes.
With a little more work this, or something like this could be a very useful tool in recording crime scenes.
Just think once a careful walk through had been done and a few key measurements made not only could your recreate the crime scene. You could then easily lay out the geometry of gun fights, mark evidence and leave interactive notes. Even years later after a building might have been destroyed, you could walk through scene again and again combing over evidence that might have once been over looked.
I hope someone is working on this…
Here’s my idea for turning your lunch bag into a place mat. You could print inside the bag to make it even more fun!
Could we waste less paper if our food bags did double duty?
What new marketing fun could be made by printing in the bag?
How much paper could we save by not having place mats?
