So you’ve been here a while now, I think its time we got you a vehicle.
This assignment had us merging five separate images of various vehicles into one glorious machine. Any five vehicles could be used. A vehicle technically meant just anything that moves a person from point A to point B, and is not alive. For my vehicles, I spent a lot of time deciding and re-deciding, until I figured out what I wanted.
My vehicles consisted of:
- A Segway, which would be the main base that the vehicle is built around;
- A Cessna Skyhawk mono-prop airplane, which I took the wings off of and added to the base of the Segway;
- The USS Enterprise NCC-1701 (fictional, from Star Trek), which I took the warp nacelle pylons off of the back of, and pinned to the edges of the Cessna wings;
- A Saturn V rocket, which I took a thruster from and placed on the back of the vehicle;
- and a pair of pogo sticks, which act as landing struts.
In sketch, I envisioned it slightly differently; I originally saw it with a rolling office chair (technically a vehicle by definition) on the center for the pilot to sit in, and a shopping cart in the back as a sort of storage area. I scrapped both of these ideas for either being difficult to implement or simply silly. Also, I realized later that it needed a way to land somewhere, hence the pogo sticks acting as landing struts. After the image was created, I christened it as the Segwessna I, as a portmanteau of the words Segway and Cessna, the two major components of the craft.
