  • This studio focused on creating something that would benefit people, or was inspired by the people living on imaginary planets from the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. We were inspired by the bird people of Brontital. The evolved from human like beings into bird people within a span of less than 10 minutes, so we wanted to show the evolution of the bone structure in a smooth gliding movement to show the speed of the transition. Instead of creating one arm piece, we decided to create an arm piece and a hand piece that would come together in a final product to show how even though the beings evolved into bird-like creatures, they still had human characteristics. We went through multiple iterations of different types of sliding mechanisms until we decided on a basic, 2D telescope feature.
