Concept Daemon Operative
The Razorback; a sword-wielding robotic riderless motorcycle. It sounds like something from a childhood saturday morning cartoon… but deadly. A motorcycle designed for killing and driven by a computer; Razorbacks are truly the stuff of nightmares. Daniel Suarez’s Daemon describes these machines, and I am attempting to bring one to life in 3D. I hope to do the detailed, vivid descriptions in the books justice.
Before I go on, I have to give a bit of a “spoiler alert”. The series of screencasts that will follow contain information about the books (Daemon and Freedom™) on some level. If you haven’t read the books yet, go read them. I’ll wait. This post will still be here when you get back.
The Plan: A Buell as the Platform
The first video in this series talks about the machines, my plan to hack apart the Buell XB12R as the base for the Razorback, and potential design decisions that could happen over the next few weeks.
