We're old enough to remember when the number 2000 was a signifier of the frighteningly distant future, when men would either zoom through the stars in laser limousines or scrounge in the atomic rubble for edible rocks. Either way civilization turned, bad-ass vehicles were always on the agenda. The year 2000 has come and gone, with disappointingly few instances of roadbound, airborne, or space vehicle combat, but we can still dream. Your challenge this week:
Create a futuristic battle-mobile from past and current Woot products.
You can go the Buck Rogers route with a fancy hi-tekk star-van, or get all Mad Max up in this mug with a post-apocalyptic junkyard jeep, or whip up something in a '70s decadent-murder mode a la the original Deathrace 2000 or Rollerball. Just make it look like the future, and make it out of Woot stuff.
Post your entry here by 11:59 AM CST on Monday, January 12, 2009.
Prizes are $20/$50/$100 for 3rd/2nd/1st. The rules and criteria for
winning: our panel of volunteer judges can and will make stuff up as it
goes along. Use Photoshop, linoleum blocks, pastels, MSPaint, cave
painting, tattoos, tribal scarification, whatever, but it’ll only be
judged if it’s visible in our forums as a jpg, gif, or png. As we are
fond of saying, try to keep your maximum width to 450px. If you need a
place to host your pictures, try www.imageshack.ws or www.photobucket.com.
We have no connection to either, but they seem free and easy to use.
And if you want us to be sure your entry was indeed your work, post
links to your source images. The more sure we are that you did your own
work, the more likely we are to consider it for a prize.
