Concept Design Quest - A book about 20 futuristic vehicles

$6,930

100

Are you a fan of art, design, science fiction, or automobiles? Would you like to get an insiders look at designs that might be in our future? Then this is an opportunity you can't miss out on.  Over the past 3 years I've been on a quest to design some exciting new vehicles.  It started as a design experiment on Facebook. There was a lot of positive feedback and so I wanted to share these designs with you. I've put together a collection of 20 concept vehicles that push the boundaries of form and function. When you support this project you can be one of the first to get a beautifully designed collectors book that takes a look into the future, and the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting an artist like myself in the maker movement.

You'll discover 20 new and different vehicles in photo-like clarity. Vehicles like drones, flying cars, trains, aircraft, spaceships, motorcycles, and other futuristic vehicle concepts. Also included are easy to understand tips and illustrations for creating your own dynamic products, from the ground up. Plus you will be one of the first to have access to the 3D prints of your favorite vehicle designs using QR codes inside the book (as they become available).

I want this book to be a special thing you add to your collection, something that stirs your imagination with thoughts of how the world might be in the future.

The $5K goal will help pay for hired assistance, the video, marketing, and mostly cover the cost of publishing, I will complete the not-so-fun technical work associated with finishing the book (proofreading, legal, graphics, etc.).  I'm very excited to show you what might be in our future!

As any designer will tell you, it takes time to build a detailed 3D design, here you'll see 20 of them, from sketch to models and 3D prints (as they become available).

Risks and challenges

This book is a work in progress, but I feel I've given myself plenty of time to get it finished by August 2016 (it is 80% done now). Besides outside vendors like the Publisher or Post office delays, my computer giving up on me (but backed up), and extreme weather conditions, everything else is under control. The 3D prints may take extra research and development time to prepare, but I will let you know as they become available.
