endangeredomega wrote:Sorry guys, but apart from the shiny ramyglow, I'm just not seeing the appeal of this one. (Then again, I'm more of a biology/theatre/comics geek, so if there's some big physics joke behind it I'm not getting, please explain.)

Knowing the crowd I hang out with, from any kind of distance, this will just be seen as just another Tony Stark chest-reactor design. :/



First, I'm gonna ignore the Ramy reference, second the theory of cold fusion has been around awhile and has been popularized in movies such as IQ or The Saint. It's widely discredited by most researchers today but renewed interest has sparked up in the last few years. It basically proposes the possibility of harnessing the incredible power of nuclear fusion in a containable safe format. Basically stars in jars as I said earlier hence the image. Look it up in places like wikipedia to get more info. It's basically the holy grail of energy science, something that will probably never be acheived but tantalyzing at the same time.

Ha, well I didn't realise that, and I'm not so stupid to think you couldn't google that source, but I genuinely didn't see that entry, so I apologise.

You used the EXACT SAME idea. But, contrary to what a large number of this community's members say -- namely that every idea has been done; ergo nothing is original -- you took the idea in a completely different direction. IMO, your shirt is completely safe from rejection and serves as an excellent example of what I said before.

I REALLY like this, but I also don't like the color. I'd never wear it on the yellow. Still voted for it....but won't be buying it.

Very nice, guys! The solar spikes/flares sell the science feel, and it makes a good looking shirt. :^)

The swallows and coconut design had two of the same submission in the fog, so woot took the old submission down, that is why you could see the numbers while in the fog.

I'm not sure I'm into the yellow shirt and I'm not really confident it'll beat out some of the others to print, but it's a fantastic and well thought-out concept, so I'll vote for it.

Stars are bright and do glow. As for shine, it is inside a glass jar. Glass reflects light so any light source will reflect and 'shine' off of the glass. ^^; Glow and shine are part of the physical nature of the objects depicted.



I have to agree with the ramyb comment. And I don't think endangeredomega or I misunderstand the idea of the star-in-a-jar idea. Personally, I'm just sick of seeing this shiny style that was done in Seki's Birth of the Moon shirt as well as others which have names less memorable than the shirts themselves.

i dont get why people care so much about other shirts, just judge this shirt by its own strengths and weaknesses, not by others. how else would you do a star in a jar without a glow?

I think what people are missing is the amazing rendering of this piece. that jar is amazing! and the beautiful, quite calmness of this design is stunning. +1 from me.

Re: Cold Fusion

Looks very sharp guys! It also could interpreted as a super mutant firefly in a jar;) The colors suit the shirt very well and the whole design is very crisp, neat and attractive.

Re: Physics of a Falling Cat (resub)

Hehe this reminds me of physics class actually, because on my physics textbook cover there was a series of photographs of a cat falling just like this on the cover, except more steps. I remember doodling it from the book a few times in my notes when I was bored. Ah memories!

Vote!
