Hello, everyone!  We need a Trade Show Booth, and we're asking you to help us out!  So it is time for a Contest!
 
1) Make at least one image of a proposed Artemis Bridge. The image(s) can be created in any media. The image(s) must show 5 crew consoles (with screens), a place for the captain to sit or stand, and a main screen. It should also have indicators of scale (such as measurements). It can also show anything else you feel is important.
 
Contest Judging will favor designs that can be easily shipped.  For example, a design that can easily be palletized, or packed into standard-sized wheeled shipping boxes.
 
2) Name your bridge design. Be tasteful.
 
3) Convert your image(s) to a digital format (if they aren't already). .PNG or .JPG file formats are preferred.
 
4) Email your image(s) to artemissbs@gmail.com . For the Subject line, write "Artemis Bridge Contest", followed by the name you chose in step 2. Attach your digital image(s) to this email. You may also use the email's body to further describe your bridge, tell us how it would be assembled, or tell us more about yourself and/or your design process.
 
All entries must contain (in the body of the email):  Your full name, your preferred email address, and the Country you reside in.  Any entries submitted without this information in the body of the message will be disqualified.
 
This much will complete your entry. However, you may design and submit as many bridge designs as you like. If you want to revise your bridge design and re-submit it, re-send with the same name and the word [UPDATED] at the end.
 
Submissions will be accepted until June 20th, 2014, at 11:59PM. After that, the judges will announce the winners by July 15th, 2014. The winning designs will be publicly posted on the Artemis facebook page and the Artemis Forums, and may be mentioned elsewhere.
 
All entries become the sole property of Incandescent Workshop, LLC.  By entering, entrants agree to abide by these rules, and warrant and represent that their entry is their original work, and grant to Station the right to edit, publish, promote and otherwise use their entries without further permission, notice or compensation.
 
All entrants must be 18 years of age or older.
 
The prize categories are as follows:
$500 - Best Bridge Design utilizing a 10'x10' (3.05mx3.05m) space.
$250 - Runner up for Best Bridge Design.
$100 - Bridge Design that gives the best Bang for the Buck.
$100 - Bridge Design that gives the best "Star Trek" feel.
Honorable Mention - 10 winners will receive one Artemis: The Spaceship Bridge Simulator Collector's Box Edition.
 
Decisions of the judges are final and binding. In the event there are not enough eligible entries, not all prizes will be awarded. If a potential winner is unable for whatever reason to accept his or her prize, then Incandescent Workshop LLC reserves the right to award the prize to another entrant.  One winner per category.
 
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER.

So many questions:

Must this utilize existing furniture/hardware owned by Incandescent Workshop LLC (e.g. Chairs, tables, computers, televisions, etc.) or may we make suggestions for furniture/hardware to purchase?

If existing computer hardware is to be used, is there a list of size specs for each?

Must we consider a projector/screen scenario?

Is this going to be a wired or wireless (oh, please no! At GenCon?  Right!) setup?

What accommodations need to be made for power sources?

Does there need to be consideration of space for tables for merchandising and booth "babes", or is this strictly bridge only?

Do we need to consider DMX lighting for this bridge?

Is this to be considered a draped/screened (3 wall) booth, or is this fully open / 1 wall?

Are custom construction specifications (e.g. custom walls, raised captains platforms, hand built wood podiums, etc.) off limits?

Can ALL players be required to stand for the duration (no chairs layout)?

Is there a budget to consider in all of this?

May we use our own submitted layouts for conventions that we run our own Artemis events at? (try and stop me!  [wink]  )

Thanks,

Rusty

US pallets or european pallets? Looking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pallet I can see a bunch of different sizes, and I wonder if any of those is preferred.

If the 3.05m a hard limit? I can think of designs incorporating the pallets in them, which might overhang about 10cm (4 inches) or so..

What if the images/design are also shared in the forum for feedback?

To add to badge guys questions.

Will the booth have small 3' side walls if it is a 3 wall booth.

Will this be the only booth in use, or will there be 10 x 10 game space next to another marketing booth? (for the booth babes and merchandise.)

will it be an end cap and have two open sides... (as they cost more at the con)

As the communications here seem to be secondary to that of Facebook,  I am re-posting the question and answer left of the feed that may answer some questions:

Quote:
Joel Nola
1) What materials should contest entrants expect to have available for the final fabrication? I ask because some designs could be made using metal that can't be done using wood.
2) Are you also looking for decoration, or just forms and shapes?
3) Do entries have to account for the individual workstation CPUs and server CPU, or just a monitor and screen? If they have to include the workstation CPU, what form factor should be expect, such as ultra small form factor or minitower?
4) You mention palatalized shipping, how high can the pallet be stacked? Will the pallet have a hard shell, or should the final design take shipping durability into account?
5) What tools should the designer expect to be available on-site for the assembly of the display/bridge simulator? Can the design stipulate certain tools be included with the system?

Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator
1) Rule of Cool applies, here. I also work in a 40,000sq ft. Makerspace with a full woodshop, metal shop, and precision metal shop. We'd favor pre-made pieces parts (for ease of replacing damaged parts), but if you wow us, you wow us!
2) Finished design.
3) Your design, your computing power. The more thought out the design, the better.
4) Hard shell shipping crates/cases will be preferred. Yes, we will accept that the booth may need a custom case. The less wacky, the better.
5) The more complex the assembly, the less attractive the design. We may have anywhere from a full day to set up, to a few hours. Asking us to have basic tools is fine. Telling us we need to bring a TiG Welder is not.

Thank you, Joel!

We are doing this right now at our Makerspace in kansas city.

We should talk.   I haven't posted designs because this is our big reveal for the end of June, but we may have something better than a picture of plans.

We have a 15X24  portable bridge that is fully enclosed with powered sliding doors and walls of screens and explodey panels etc.

Everything is cardboard, MDF, and styrofoam.  well a little PVC in key spots.

I'll post photos soon.

Wow, I can't wait to see!  I just finished drawings and am starting a mock-up of mine.  The portable bridge for my den will be 11' x 13'.  I'm modifying it for my contest submission, and will post pictures on my other thread after the 20th.

yeah, that is kind of a screwy license.  the terms should be a perpetual right to use for Incandescent, with ownership still belonging to the contestant.
