Background: The Return of Theropods
The year is 2045, the earth is hit by a deadly virus that turns birds into giant monsters- a return to their evolutionary Theropods. These monsters demolish skyscrapers with a swing of their tails!
Humans combat these monsters by controlling the mind of an alpha-monsters using BRAIN.
BRAIN is an advance non-invasive brain-to-computer interface technology.
BRAIN uses non-invasive mind-control technology like NextMind to decode information through intense focusing.
Brain-computer Interface translates brain activity into digital commands, allowing the wearer to control visual interfaces in real time.
Inspirations were drawn from dystopian sci-fi movies like Blade Runner, Ghost in a Shell, Alita Battle Angel and the likes. I also engaged in some body-storming exercises with some VR lenses to get a feel of the proportions and general experience.
The conceptualisation began with exploration of potential helmet profile configurations in line with the theme of the fictional scenario. The preferred design is to bear a semblance to the monster. And to serve as camouflage.
The selected silhouettes were then developed further. The structure of the Theropods informed the form of the helmet (BRAIN).
Hardsurface sylisation was infused into the concept to give it a military and combative look.
Kitbash was done using Zbrush and PS to further sell the idea visually.
3D Scanning & Modelling
In order to build the custom face fitting device for myself, a 3D scan of my head was taken using the Artec LEO 3D scanner, The head model would be used as a base model to build the device for a perfect fit when manufactured.
Feel free to interact with my head scan model below 😉
