Chariot Bug: SST by filbarlow Chariot Bug: SST by filbarlow
The Chariot bugs carried the Brain bug around on their back supports. I did this final design off a rough by Milenko Tunjic, who was part of the crew working for my Australian company.

It was colored with markers (Tria by Pantone) and details with pencils (Prismacolor by Berol).

Ha! Awesome. I bet the "The future is wild"- documentary plagiarized this for their 'Terabytes' [link]

Maybe, but I doubt it. At least they took they designs off insects.

Chariot buggggg!!! :iconlawooplz:

Ah! I see! Those support-thingies look pretty dandy for the job. Omigosh, these things gave me the willies in the show. You see these creep on the scene, and you instantly know what's coming next....! XD XD XD

For some reason I really like the foot design. It seems somehow.... daintier than a lot of the other bugs. More elegant. XD

That doesn't sound like a pleasent job :p It sure looks like something used to carrying huge stuff. Like you could strap a space shuttle on top or a boat.

lol I could use one to get me around the place, it would be cheaper than our transport system in Melbourne.

I've been biting my lip about this subject, but I always figured that the Chariot bugs ate the Brain bug's poop. So if you owned one....

That would make a LOT of sense. It would make their relationship symbiotic, very bug-like. Though shouldn't the chariot bugs be carrying the brain bugs backward so they could feed :p

It would probably take a lot of poop though.

They take turns carrying and feeding I guess. Concerning the amount of poop the Chariot bugs aren't that big and the Brain bug is HUGE, so the ratios could work out.

I think you'd need a compost bin to feed one for personal transport XD
