These 2 sketches depict the Amphi Seed or canister landed on the beach. In the early concept phase the seed would be raised into a vertical position by a back leg so it could open the hatch towards land. If you watch to the right in the distance you can see the 3-finger island that was first intended to break the surface indicating the robot lying beneath. Oh yes, the robot was there from the very beginning back in 99.
I think we can all safely say that the canisters ended up being the better approach. Was the packaging originally intended to reflect this seed design or was that not part of it by that point?ReplyDelete
