Home Security Applications
The following is a conceptual design for a robot plant
which looks a bit like a plant
(textures and colours). It doesn't actually move, it just sits
on its base. It has a microprocessor built in, and the device can
have various things fitted to the ends of its arms, which can be oriented
manually and then locked into place. For example it can have a speaker
and microphone, and movement sensor, to converse with potential guests.
This enables it to question visitors using a simple WAVE file
uploaded via USB. The green spheres represent "leaves"
and could be replaced by plastic leaves. Its security function is more as
a deterrant (an unknown electrical device noted on the outside of the premises).
Shown: 3D view (upper image), and Top View (lower image).

Some Sort of Creation
This is a bit of a scribble, it was created using 3DCanvas. The red shape is interesting
because it looks like some kind of flying shape, the rest shows some of the results
that can happen from picking the 3d operations at random to see what happens (haha). If an
interesting shape is generated then, it could be used as a character or as an item in a 3d
room. The AVI file shows these items then moving around (animated), abstractly.
