Project – Props, Objects & Vehicles – Development of Environment (27/11/13)

So today we have had an introduction to props and vehicles design, and we had a discussion of Ergonomics and how things are designed to fit the person that is using them. A brilliant example of this is that some cash points have 2 different heights, 1 rather short and the other slightly larger, clearly to accommodate disabled people using a wheelchair and making it lower and more accessible. We also looked at the Haptica watch, which is a watch designed for blind or sight impaired people and uses braille so that people can have a pride of ownership and not have watches that read the time to you and potentially disrupt a meal or meeting.

After this discussion we have been set a task of making an exhaustive list of items and props that would be found in our environment. This list has to have at least 3 dozen items in it, and not overlapping, for example “Blue sock, Red sock, Yellow sock” will all be counted as 1 item just with an extensive category.

So I started work on my list almost immediately and began listing off things that would fit into my Adaptation, this is my list so far:

For Vehicles I have:

  • UAV, (Unmanned Air Vehicle)
  • Ground Drone, (Reconnaissance Drone)
  • Assault Drone, (Drone with mounted guns)

As for my Objects & Props I have:

  • Stargate (For embarking to other worlds)
  • Ramp (To get up to the Stargate)
  • Rails (To guide the drones up, Both Air & Ground)
  • Cupboard (Both open and closed)
  • Guns (Inside the cupboard)
  • Clothing (Jackets, waterproof, Etc…)
  • Armour (Body armour, Helmets, Etc…)
  • Cables (Power, communication Etc…)
  • Power box/Fuse box
  • Clamps (To hold the gate in place)
  • Lights (Over head and alarm lights)
  • Alarm button
  • Phone (Emergency on the wall)
  • Blast door (Over the observation window)
  • Iris (To place over the gate and stop things coming through)
  • Sand bags (For guards to take cover behind)
  • Mounted guns
  • Speakers
  • CCTV (To play back any incidents)
  • Toolbox (Spanner, Screwdrivers, hammers Etc…)

These are just my initial thought for things located inside the gateroom. This next list is for things located inside the observation room:

  • Computers (Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse Etc….)
  • Tables
  • Chairs
  • Coffee cups
  • Pens
  • Notepads
  • Map (of the stargate points)
  • Artifacts
  • Pictures (Personal people)
  • Printers
  • First Aid Kit
  • Radio (Communication to the First Aid Room)
  • Weapons (For rapid response to an emergency)

Here are a few of my drawings of my scene and what i want it to look like stripped down to bare minimum in the way of props.
