OPAL - CDA Demo by BenMauro OPAL - CDA Demo by BenMauro
One of the designs developed for the Concept Design Academy workshop this past weekend, started with photo/sketch exploration and this was a zbrush blockout/paintover to resolve the design and take it to a slightly higher fidelity as some of the stuff covered on day 1 before refining further. Thanks to everyone that came out it was an awesome time, tried to cram a few weeks of stuff into two days. The idea is that the smaller arms can clip/lock into the main arms while in motion or while in transit on another vehicle. The larger arms/legs are for locomotion and manipulation, each finger is a retractable tentacle type manipulator that come out when needed for more delicate interaction with its environment or for attacking. The smaller arms are for manipulation and have an ammo feed inside so the design can hold another weapon with its fingers or fire directly out of its hands to engage targets in multiple directions at once. The arms are all very flexible like an octopus or something so it could move and traverse areas where a human cannot, the more hard surfaced parts at the top of each limb contain ammo/battery/brain of the thing so even if the main 'head' area gets damage or an arm gets blown off they can operate independently to finish their task. Will post some of the closeup's/refinements we did of some of this soon.

Will post some of the other stuff that got developed over the next few days and get all the files/videos to the people who attended.

I'd like to go to one of those at least once. 

I really like the sense of movement those arms give the design. Any chance we might see a side view too?
