2050 Ensorcel Concept
Jacques Beaumont Age: 37 years old Residence: Lives in Nice, France Occupation: Fashion Designer/consultant Family: Married, no children
Jacques is frustrated with the public transit routes not being close to work but also doesn’t like the feeling of driving a vehicle.
“I don’t like to drive and I don’t want to have to take public transit to work”
The Renault Ensorcel is an autonomous vehicle that is powered by two turbines that are located toward the rear of the hull.The turbines are omni-directional and are what allow the Ensorcel to have a very sharp turning radius.
As the air passes through the vent openings of the Ensorcel, it quickly becomes magnetized. This allows the vehicle to become bouyent in the air and hover. The Ensorcel is able to hover variable distances from the ground depending on the strength of the magnetization.

CORALINE VEHICLE DESIGN
OV E R V I E W
Design a vehicle that ‘The Other Mother’ could have used to chase Coraline in the film. The design must reflect the stylization of the film. Some key aspects of ‘The Other Mother’ are: 1. Long, twitchy fingers 2. Half spider, half skeleton 3. Black buttons replace eyes
M OV I E OV E R V I E W
“When Coraline moves to an old house, she feels bored and neglected by her parents. She finds a hidden door with a bricked up passage. During the night, she crosses the passage and finds a parallel world where everybody has buttons instead of eyes, with caring parents and all her dreams coming true. When the Other Mother invites Coraline to stay in her world forever, the girl refuses and finds that the alternate reality where she is trapped is only a trick to lure her. Written by British author Neil Gaiman and adpated into a 2009 stop-motion film by Henry Selick”

Create a form that is able to be repeated multiple times and in any direction
Design an object that is inspired by water waves and how water acts when it crashes into the shore.
Simply the form so that it could be placed in a wide variety of households.
“The Rookwood Ripple Tile is an abstraction of water waves. This water inspired tile is completely symmetrical and is able to be tessellated in any ninety degree turn. This tile is great for shower walls or for a decorative artpiece.”
How It’s Made 1. 3D Model is done in Alias Automotive 2. Full scale model is milled out of foam 3. Use the milled forms to create a rubber negative 4. Pour HydroCal in negative to get plaster positives
