    Concept combine harvester based on Crustacean characteristics
    Published:
Crustacean Concept Combine
Design Challenge for IVT International Magazine (September 2011 issue)
Design Challenge Brief: Take an insect, animal or other living organism and create and industrial vehicle version of it.

Could there be any link between an aquatic living organism and a combine harvester? Many of the crustaceans are filter-feeders, extracting food from the water in which they live by forcing a constant flow of it through their bodies. Thus their biology could be a metaphor for the main function of a combine. This project, based on crustaceans characteristics, is intended to create a new formal language with new functions applied on a combine.
