teh perspective perspective thread! Friend 06/21/2021 (Mon) 17:25:32 No.653
i noticed an uptick of quality images in the perspective view lately, so let's ¡TACO!'bout the perspective perspective!

>>653 i found some nice drawings in the ligne claire drawing style. while they obviously aren't photos, due to the perspective view, i still find them to be detailed and immersive enough to actually imagine being in these scenes.

flying cars are the future! this cool comic i found, dark futuro, has some clean-looking perspective drawings of a potential hovercar. the comic's story and setting seems kind of dark, though.
>>1078 >wedge cars Haha...
>>653 f-friends, can we have more anime pictures? i was kind of hoping to build up my anime picture collection, and a lot of the anime pictures /kind/ posts are in the perspective view, you know... >>1079 you can't deny that wedge cars have cool designs. and the flying wedgecars of the future will run on futuristic hydrogen internal combustion engines!
>>1466 Wedge cars are pretty cool, but the design is practically dead and it's never coming back. They died with the Lotus Esprit. The future of cars are bloated and round EVs that will gradually remove control from the owners. I think HICEs are going to be limited to motorsports, since they're a little more practical for that than EVs and they don't have to abide by the same laws as the cars you see on the road. So much money is being dumped into the development of EVs both by private companies and governments. I think it's too late for alternatives to be seriously considered until we start seeing the longterm effects that EVs will have, alongside the lack of any real benefits for the consumer. As for flight, well, I just don't see any governments letting people operate flying cars without an expensive license and training. They'll probably be heavily taxed for some reason or another. Giving people easy access to the power of flight is a huge risk, especially when there are more and more regulations against traditional weapons. We already saw terrorist attacks consisting of people driving through crowds. With flying vehicles, an individual could instead send their car into an office building. Even more, they could have explosives in their vehicle. Maybe the most important thing is, the extremely wealthy would be at risk, and you know we can't have that. I know you probably weren't being serious, but still. I feel like it needs to be said.

let's たこ! / 蛸! 'bout the perspective perspective~! octopuses, which are known as tako (たこ) in japanese, have a strange connection with traditional japanese art, manga, and anime. these neat pictures of figurines i found feature these octopuses. >>1470 car anon, i finally got around to you! i'm really sorry, i meant to reply to you a month ago. i was kidding when i said flying HICE cars were the future, but HICE cars in general are actually a terrible idea, for this reason: hydrogen fuel is like a leaky rechargeable battery. energy has to be put into this battery in order to later get energy out of it. and once you use this battery, you're going to lose this energy fast. but even more importantly, if the energy doesn't come from a clean source, like renewable or nuclear energy, then the hydrogen fuel itself isn't clean. this is probably the reason why hydrogen cars lost out in popularity to EVs, which have batteries that can be recharged over and over with clean electricity. >I think HICEs are going to be limited to motorsports, since they're a little more practical for that than EVs and they don't have to abide by the same laws as the cars you see on the road. for motorsports, i think the ideal vehicle would be a hydrogen car with a wankel engine, like mazda's RX-8 Hydrogen RE. but EVs can be quite competitive.
>>2451 >i was kidding when i said flying HICE cars were the future I figured, but I was bored and wanted to explore the idea a bit myself. >but even more importantly, if the energy doesn't come from a clean source, like renewable or nuclear energy, then the hydrogen fuel itself isn't clean. Same for EVs. They're hellish on the environment producing the batteries, not to mention they go bad relatively fast as well. Either are currently poor environmental solutions. ICE isn't even much of an issue. It's mostly the big ass container ships causing the emissions. This is all another can of worms. Either way, they both have a long way to go before they're a reasonable choice. And then they have to be used for years until they're actually affordable for everyone. >ideal vehicle would be a hydrogen car with a wankel engine For now. Assuming EVs do get developed to the point that they aren't totally useless in terms of performance, I think they would overtake the HICE. An issue with the wankel engine is that they are less fuel efficient and less torque. Torque on wankel engines is generally subpar. While the wankel engine produces an exceptional amount of horsepower, it won't have the same "get up and go" as a piston engine of comparable power. Wankels shine in races like Le Mans, where it just recently got unbanned. The long straight section allows that top end power to shine. You wouldn't see too much benefit from the lighter weight though, since I would guess that cars competing will hover around as close to the weight restrictions as they can, regardless of engine format. I suppose that weight could go to something else though. EVs are more or less the opposite of the wankel. Relatively heavy, great acceleration, not great top speed. Sorry if my post is all over the place. I wrote it during breaks at work.

look at these scenes and imagine yourself in them. how do you feel? i found these pictures in the perspective view to be beautifully immersive. >>2482 >They're hellish on the environment producing the batteries, not to mention they go bad relatively fast as well. that's a good point. i suppose EV's popularity comes down to cost then. i did a brief skim on hydrogen production costs, and it looks like producing hydrogen fuel by using renewable energy is roughly three times more expensive than producing hydrogen the non-renewable way. if you only consider net energy costs, the situation is a lot nicer with batteries, as less energy is wasted by sending electricity through a battery. the last part of your post was pretty informative. i wasn't aware of the specifics that had to do with racing, like Le Mans banning wankel engines. do gasoline-fueled wankel engines really provide that much advantage?
>>2744 >how do you feel? The first one is nice. A temperate summer day in rural Japan. Seems perfect for exploring. The other two are a little less nice. Planes are kind of annoying. Living near a major airport has killed any enthusiasm for planes. >Do gasoline-fueled wankel engines really provide that much advantage? Maybe. They're better over longterm, but they still lack torque so they'll be beat in a short race. Supposedly, there was already a rule in the making banning wankels, but it could just be ass-blasted euros because they got beat by a Japanese company in the big race. Today, I doubt it would perform as well in comparison to piston engines. Wankel development slowed to a crawl afterward, since there isn't much of a reason to make serious developments when they can't compete in races that require every little bit that can put into a car to win.
