'The Pocket Æther Perambulator'
Finally complete after over 6 months of work. This is a combination of several large renders so download is totally recommended to get all the detail. I would like to note that there are some artifacts which have been left as an indication that this is a mere 3d model. (a gentleman's bowtie is never perfect!!)
The dimensions for this are based on my trusty Nokia N95, It opens much like a netbook and boasts the following features.
*Fob ring - for attaching to a gentlemans pocket chain
*External Chronograph - with visible mechanism
*External Camera Obscura - for capturing magical images which might take ones fancy
*Internal Camera Obscura - for presenting images of your own visage whilst communing over the Ætheric web
*Miniaturised QWERTY typewriter - to aid in the preparation of Æthergrammes
*Ætheric plasma picture frame - for viewing the Ætheric web
*Internal magnetic resonance speaker/microphone
*Dedicated buttons for accessing the Ætheric web
*Exquisite external engraving and name plate bearing the following information 'The Pocket Æther Perambulator - enabling communion across Ætheric space. As presented by Prof. A. J. G. Wellsby'
