Ideas for my final project


For my project I to come up with a scenario that would challenge life as we know it.  That might be an environmental or apocalyptic disaster but it results in a whole new world that mankind would need to adapt to.
What would their vehicles look like for the scenario I choose?  To create a mode of transport that could adapt and cope with the environment.  To be as realistic as I can be I want to talk to car designers,scientists and engineers to find out theory regarding suitable materials for elements such as extreme heat or cold.

Environmental disaster:
Solar flares
Solar flares would impact the way we live one of the biggest impacts would be the use of electrical devices solar flares work the same as an EMP and would fry any electrical devices therefore the vehicle would have to have nonelectrical parts

things to consider when designing
·         could study destroy atmosphere
·         destroy the ozone layer
·         extreme heat
Too much vegetation
a world covered in vegetation where every day more and more trees grow at a rapid rate

things to consider when designing
·         the vehicle would have to be very large or very small to be able to get around trees and through the vegetation
·         would need some sort tools to cut through vegetation
·         could the society use the vegetation to run the cars (e.g burning the wood from the trees to fuel the car)
A worldwide drought
a world dealing with extreme heat minimal water. The vehicle would have to be able to drive long distances without overheating if we is that far into a drought would we start to lose our oceans and with vehicles have to be able to travel over oceans that have disappeared

things to consider when designing
·         extreme heat
·         minimal water
·         rough terrain

Rising sea levels causing widespread flooding
If we was in a world where sea levels had risen would that be enough room for people to live or would people decide to live underwater with this vehicle have to be able to work underwater as well as above water.

things to consider when designing
·         Under water pressure
·         be able to work underwater

Constant/Tony is hurricanes / tornados
              an environment tussling with extreme winds
things to consider when designing
·         vehicle would have to have some sort system allowing it to be grappled to the ground when parked up
·         very heavy
·         vehicle would have to deal with control of the vehicle under high winds

New ice age
a new Ice Age where we have to struggle with heavy snow, ice, high winds, bad visibility, how would our vehicles look if we had to use them every day

things to consider when designing
·         extreme temperatures
·         the traction between the car and the floor
·         would it need to get under the ice and underwater
Toxic wasteland
if the whole world was covered in nuclear waste

things to consider when designing
·         the vehicle would have to be protected from radiation
·         could we run the vehicles of toxic waste this lining around
volcanic eruption
so if a load of volcanic abrupt covering the Earth’s surface how would our vehicles cope with driving over lava the extreme heat and the darkness

things to consider when designing
·         hot magma on the floor
·         Ash sky- how would this affect air get into the car and engine
·         extreme heat
me Thane Gas
what if in the air contained me Thane gas so that any sort of spark would set off an explosion

things to consider when designing
·         would have to run off something that didn’t have a spark
·         some sort of system that was airtight but could also all allow oxygen in the system to ignite a spark

Zombie invasion
 live in everyday plowing through zombies with your car just to get to work
·         extremely tough
·         reliable
·         would have to have some sort of way to keep you safe when getting in and out of your car

Change of hierarchy
man replaced by insects as top of the food chain.

build in the sky
if the ground was uninhabitable we lived in the sky vehicles would have to have some sort of way again between build and build
things to consider when designing
·         flying cars
·         magnetic or grappling system to get from building to building
·         be visible in clouds
build underground.
If we lived underground could we drill through the ground to make a are roads we have tunnels to be able to get from place to place

things to consider when designing
·         vehicle would have to be equipped with different kind of senses to be able to find its way around

What if we lived on Mars
possibility of living on a anothen planning with zero gravity

things to consider when designing
·         zero gravity
·         getting about at speed



So at the end of this project I would like to have designed a vehicle  purposely suited for one of these environments. Not sure how it to display my work maybe is a short animation or advert would like to use motion tracking in aftereffects to create a realistic representation of what the environment would look like
