- Vision Pollux -
Ahoy! Long overdue post, but here we go. Introducing Vision Pollux!
Pollux is as a speedy concept demo for @danadaffon to demo my new @winsorandnewton cg set last year. Pollux is designed to be a CNT infused interactive body frame. Along with this, is a mid-engine configuration where the cabin sits behind the engine; behind the front wheels.
The cabin is accessible through a forward sliding halo door concept. The halo configuration is a singular access cover that holds the entire glass visor on a multi-hinged titanium exo-skeleton developed to hold the entire visor in place as it retracts above the hood. The glass is infused with CNT fibers for enough rigidity to discard of the A-pillar whilst still meeting industry safety standards. Part of the body is also cut to improve access and to eliminate passenger hazards. A titanium wishbone holds Pollux’s roof. This wishbone makes the roof strong enough to not crush in the event of a topside collision or in a rollover. The wishbone also helps performance for it’s strength allows the roof panels to be made lighter, anchoring Pollux’ center of gravity down. A handy trait around the track.
Pollux is named after a yellow-orange giant star designated Beta Geminorum, one of the oldest reference points of which other stars are classified via it’s spectrum. Pollux is the brightest star in it’s constellation, however, seen from earth, it has a striking visual balance with another star, Alpha Geminorum, better known as it’s twin, Castor. However, up close, they clearly differ. Castor is a sextuple system of A-types and red dwarfs while Pollux is a yellow-orange giant. Both stars make up the foundation of the heavenly twins, Gemini.
Wait, there’s a twin then?
