SMC #46


They come in all shapes and sizes, process information that in the past would need a whole building to contain the equipment. Forever changing and getting more powerful with the same old arguments between the users except distances don’t matter any longer. I wonder if we argue more now than in the past. Anyways they can be a calculator, music player, write emails, browse the internet and even watch the news with a few movies thrown in there, even have aps that will help you hang a picture on a wall while still fitting in a small pocket or handy purse. That is a cell phone. Your challenge is to model a cell phone, future, past or your own creation and test your skills at modeling a history making creation which is changing cultures around the world and maybe bringing them together as well. We need your skills and support for pushing cell phones into new territory, the trueSpace territory. Good luck with your exploration, have fun and advance to the next level, we are counting on you.

DEADLINE: 31 May 2009 at 23:59, that is the last minute on Sunday before midnight.

The rules (classic rules of the past):

1. Create the model(s) within the 2 hours time limit.

2. You may enter as many times as you like.

3. Your entry should include a wireframe screen grab before subdivision has been applied, mainly this is so people can get an idea of how things were created and maybe learn something.

4. Include time spent, trueSpace version, render engine.

5. Post only one image per entry which must be no larger than 800x600 pixels. Final composition is up to you.

6. Render time, lighting and texturing are not included as people with slower computers may be at a disadvantage.

7. The winner is encouraged to place a tutorial in the new Tutorium showing how they made their entry (Contact Norm). Sometimes the wireframe isn't enough.

I used to fit car phones when they first came out, the old hand* held Motorola's you could do some serious damage if you threw one at somebody

* looked more like a field radio, required arms like Arnie to lug it about

lol, I remember then as well being very large and utterly expensive to use. Now I don't know what I would do without one. I think I will open up a comment thread since I forgot to last night ;).

Ok, here is the first one.

DNA activated, voice recognition, and secretary like agenda, you ask, the cell answer, either with the internal terabyte memory or conecting to the cloudnet.

Sorry, no camera. :D
