Prospector | by ted @ndes

Steampunk version of a "Think Tank", designed for scouting and prospecting.


Some thoughts regarding the design:

- For the large front-eye, the studs would represent different magnifications in a composite lens. It would rotate to select each one.

- The gold cone on the top of the head I thought would be a communication whistle, primarily through Morse Code type chirps.

- I also added the clock-work cowboy as both security, and as a symbiotic partner. He protects the prospector and feeds the rear furnace. In turn, the prospector winds up the cowboy's spring.
