A Different Perspective

This is a little creative exercise I give my students.
The picture represents a store with an entrance and an exit. And parking spaces numbered 1 to 22.
The question is "What is the best parking space?"
The usual answer is:
- Any space between 7 and 16 would be best.
Here is where the creative part comes in.
'Make up a situation where there would be different optimal parking spaces'
Here are a few examples:
1) If you are buying something – The best place would be 16 or 17 because you are carrying something out of the store.
2) If the store is about to close – Spaces 6 or 7 to get in in time.
3) If you are over weight – Spaces 1 or 22 to walk more.

See if you can come up with something.

'Omega' means 'final', 'last', and 'the end'.

Although Nintendo clearly stated that the DS was NOT the next Gameboy. They still have not announced anything regarding the new system.
I am sure the success of the DS is one of the reasons, as they do not wish to take away any of the steam the system has accumulated. As well as the launch of the Wii come this November.
But Nintendo is known for their innovation, I should know. Ever since 1989 with the Original NES, I have owned (and enjoyed) every system the company produced, even the VirtualBoy.
So just a new iteration won't cut it, this product has to have a major innovation in the handheld scene. As well as be expandable and 'Future Proof'.
This is my humble gift to Nintendo, for all these years of entertainment.

And you can help too, I am taking in any serious alterations and concepts as well as ideas for modules, and I will rework the design January 2007.

I already have 2 extra modules in the works:
- A WarioWare 1 button + Gyroscope Module
- A Camera Phone Module

This Product is conceptual and not available on the market. It is not designed, endorsed or affiliated by Nintendo; The Gameboy trademark is registered to Nintendo.

A Classic

Has it really been three years?
I sent this to a couple of companies a while back, they were impressed but wanted 'complete works', not just characters.
I have since been cured of overusing the color blue in my designs.

Custom Tailored Tech

Here are a couple of designs I did to merge between attire and technology.

The first one is a rosary (called Sabha here) with a USB flash drive.

The second is a Ogal (used to keep the traditional head scarf secure) containing blue ice, for hot days and those public speaking sessions. The Shumaq (head scarf) would disperse the coolness evenly.
