Last week it was the Ultimate Dad Shoe**, this week it is a Flying Rideshare Vehicle. It is the second of three sketch challenges this month, and a part of our summer-long Core77 Design-Athlon, where designers flex their creative muscles in three core skills of sketching, prototyping and rendering.
We were wowed by your enthusiasm and ideas last week and want to keep that positive design-energy flowing, so are adding a token of appreciation for all those who play along this summer: participate in at least one challenge in each skill and we'll send you a free t-shirt. (Offer good for US mailing addresses only. International participants who meet the requirement can receive a t-shirt with payment of $10 USD to help cover shipping.)
Again we have lined-up special guest-star judge Reid Schlegel, sketching guru, educator and Senior Industrial Designer at Aruliden, to help us choose the winning entries. We are excited to see what you can cook-up...
Ding! Your future is arriving now. Flying cars have been whizzing through our imagined futures for a long time, but today economics and technology driven largely by rideshare companies seem to be steering them out of dream space and into real-world air space. What is that really going to mean for us? Our infrastructure, our communities, our wallets? Artificial intelligence, advanced fabrication and the sharing economy all converge at this intersection; will it be a wreck or a seamless flow? And that is just our current timeline - who is going to think of how things *could* have been, or *should be* - what about alternative realities and value-systems?
Let your imagination take flight – show us your vision of what a future rideshare vehicle could look like. Sketch out a blue-sky scenario before Sunday!
Flying Rideshare Vehicle Deadline is this Sunday, June 23rd at 11:59pm Eastern!
