057G1L:Osmo-Electrolytic Lungs by TonyTheZ 057G1L:Osmo-Electrolytic Lungs by TonyTheZ
Well, heres my entry for the Repo Men: Artiforg contest

The 057G1L: Osmo-Electrolytic Lung System, a.k.a The Gills

Its supposed to be an advanced lung system for specialized customers, either military or civilian contractors or private citizens, that acts as an upgrade for a standard replacement lung.
My idea was that the interior would be sheets of ionized metal, much like a radiator, that would use osmosis to infuse the blood pumping through adjacent piping with oxygen, and even utilize electrolysis to remove oxygen from water vapor in the air or if the lungs were filled with water, essentially allowing the user to breathe in toxic environments or underwater!

Some of my little annotations I developed as I drew it

A. Core, and pump system, Attaches to trachea.
-1. Broncheal Replacement system, lightweight and non-constricting structure eliminates asthma and airway obstruction.
-2. Hydrogen battery system and core pump, draws hydrogen from the air intake to power pumping system that moves blood through the radiators and back to the body.
-3. Reserve pouches for water storage. Allows for emergency water storage for electrolysis in extreme drought or toxic conditions.
-4. Hydrogen battery, contains liquid hydrogen for operation of pump and batteries.

B. Radiator and Electrolytic systems
-5. aluminum and bio-silicone ribbed radiator, allows for osmosis of oxygen into bloodflow through fins (see figure 1. below)
-6. Titanium dioxide coated piping and brackets ensure longevity of components and strength of construction.

C. Assembled Lung System with Bio-Silicone Containment
-7. Titanium-aluminum caps and bands keep a rigid structure to the apparatus and allow for secure mounting to the interior of the rib cage
-8. Bio-Silicone enclosure is flexible and contains the vapors and radiators, allows for realistic expansion and contraction of apparatus to mimic natural respiration.
- 9. secure mountings on all sides make for a natural feel and comfortable fit for maximum comfort and reliability with zero internal displacement once mounted.

I know I'm not going to win, there are so many amazing artisan crafts and digital paintings already in the submissions right now that dwarf what I was able to create
but I think I had fun with it, and both the movie and the competition really gave me alot of inspiration with biotech and mechanics and design.
So in the end, think I did pretty okay, had a bit of fun, and learned a little about anatomy and my digital painting programs; and I think that's all that really matters :dummy:

wow, that's neat, though with a very strange edge... Nice work man :D

Thanks :D
I was trying to go with something where I could mildly explain the inner mechanics
and how they replicated the natural processes of the organ it replaces.
so I based most of the tech and parts off of real-world things
like a radiator and hydrogen fuel cells because it just makes it sound that much more believable XD

Very. And the fact the it could be "fantasy" didn't occur where there are no rules and you can make up whatever you want? ;3

Well yes
but being super creative and making something totally new is HARD

and I am a lazy butt :dummy:

I love this! It has a crazy back alley mech-surgery feel about it (I mean that as a compliment!)

It's got personality :p

Lol, Thanks! :dummy:
