In 2019 I started working on a project about the Doctor Who Exhibits at Blackpool and Longleat. It was going to be a virtual walkthrough of the locations. For various reasons I stepped away from the project. Here's a frame of the console they had at Blackpool.
I was bored and started working on how the console would actually go together. Basically each of the 6 sides slides onto rails until they lock into position. Kind of like the rails that server racks use.
Also this image is for a 4k monitor. So it's rather large.
I continue to play with the layout of this design (don't think I'll ever be finished). I've added in a few items from the Series 9 console room. I've written a blog entry with a breakdown on the rendering and post process I use when creating images. You can read it HERE.
I don't know how many of you actually remember pi? But remembering this scene from the 5 Doctors is how I remember. To the point where I actually hear the actors voice in my head when I repeat it out loud.
In 2012 I won the 'Design Your Own Sonic-Screwdriver' on the Replica Prop Forum with this design. I designed it to have a drill like look to the top end with the 4 prog 'chuck' holding the emitter. The blue center I got from looking at modern medical devices. They sure seem to love light blue. The bottom sonic-lance I went with a steampunk feel. It's also a heatsink. This sonic has 8 different colors chosen by twisting the diamond-grip part near the top.
