One of my favorite magazines is Popular Science.
I love how their positive spin for their visions of the future.

Some topics that I will cover next week are:

Rocket Racing League
http://www.rocketracingleague.com/

Inflatable Space Hotels
http://www.space.com/news/businessmonday_040524.html
Flying Cruiseships

Space Elevator
http://www.space.com/businesstechnology/technology/space_elevator_020327-1.html

The Mini Space Shuttle

So post your ideas for this on the topic thread. The ONLY rule is that it has to be based on a real life concept that someone is working on.

It surprises me how unactive this thread has been compared to similar thread. Usually there are people posting things like "good idea :)!", "I'm looking forward to this!" or "no offence, but I hate this idea..." :/

I think maybe this is creating a little problem.
Does this mean that we don't get to do any desiging or do you mean like an idea that the space people are really going to do?

Edit: strike that, I've been spending too much time on conceptart.org @,@, for a second there I only connected the word concept whit design so I got a little confused, sorry ^^

Great idea using popular science as an idea generator. I have also been checking out conceptart.org and I like how some of their topics are done like...

They give the artists a more clear idea of what could be sketched. It feels much more like having an art director or a story that you're doing an illustration for. I do like the open ended way it's done here but I think sometimes I have to spend too much time interpretting the subject and not enough just getting into the sketch.

Well just a suggestion as to how we can mix it up a bit. The Popular Science idea is a really good one.
