Talking Send This to MOMA!

What a unique design, and so well executed!

Too bad you haven't built it yet.

You need to send this to the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

They've got a huge collection of design objects, from Mac computers to forks to toothbrushes.

This would definitly fit right in.

And, as you said, it's a great commentary on how we interface with technology.

Absolutely brilliant.

Damn! I need one of these.

One suggestion. Instead of the Rolling Eyeball, use an optical, thereby making the eye stationary and glowing an evil, terminator-like red from its center!

Since your badwidth has been sucked up by us freaks, what other delights can we see there?

wow, i can't believe the response here

That just can't be an accurate number of views... Thanks again for all the comments, they mean a lot to me.

On the advise of all, I'm looking into the possibilities of getting this produced, the first steps of which are getting this design copywrited or such. Actually, if there's interest, i might do a post for those that want to know such things; I know copywrite laws aren't my strong point (thank goodness one of my friends is a lawyer). It might take a bit, as I want to make sure my info's accurate and complete, though.

Wintermute2030: you're so right; this is just strange enough for them to consider.

Mr. Noodle: butt-mouse ACK!!!

FrumpyJones: red, glowing optical; plus chrome-plated plastic... body-mouse special edition. heh. as to see other artwork of mine, try .
as far as what's on my web site (for those waiting for it to come back online), it has lots of sketches, low-poly 3d, high-res 3d, some game stuff, a tutorial for creating a ship and adding it into the game HomeWorld, and of course the obligatory resume and contact info.

I'm really amazed my all this, and I thank you all.

The reason that your thread has been viewed so many times is because people like myself were sent a link in a popular technology newsletter we subscribe to known as "Mike's List". Here is the particular excerpt that concerns this thread.

Quote: PhotoShop Phonies

The "Body Mouse" looks freakishly real (inserted link here). The top looks like toes and the bottom like teeth. Don't worry, it doesn't exist in real life. The "Body Mouse" is an art project created by Chris Lomaka.

And this is how I stumbled here myself. >=)

Freaky and Awesome!

Chris - I love it! I'd buy one just to keep my wife away from my computer. Muhahahahah.

Anyway - good to see you doing well. I missed your expertise at the school when you left. Noone there helped me as much as you did, I wish you could have been around for the last few classes ... I had nothing but trouble trying to get a demo done for graduation. Ugh!

Nah, I wouldn't change it to an optical for the sheer fact that I love the worn texturing on the mouse ball too much. Nailed the paint-on-rubber look there, good combination of texture and shader. As brilliantly disturbing as the rest of the render is, that's my favourite feature for some reason.
