High-end Swedish watchmaker Anicorn has established a collaboration with Kojima Productions and NASA, producing a breathtaking view called Homo Ludens (starts in brand new tab). It is silver with golden details, with NASA stamped prominently below-centre regarding dial, plus the Kojima Productions tagline of ‘From Sapiens to Ludens’ etched regarding exterior casing.
Anicorn claims your task’s been couple of years in creating, plus it designed the view in direction of Hideo Kojima and Yoji Shinkawa. The view evidently represents “the correlation of the time, area and Homo Ludens” and Anicorn ended up being “inspired by Ludens to proclaim imagination, imagination plus the play aspect in tradition.”
Ludens could be the title associated with Kojima Productions mascot (created by Shinkawa and representing an astronaut checking out electronic area), with no question Kojima’s happy which they could actually have the NASA logo design on the website (the room agency has formerly collaborated with Anicorn). The timepiece’s design is intended to echo compared to the EVA (additional Vehicular Activity plus good Evangelion guide) suit, towards degree your product sales product calls it an “EVA Creative Suit regarding wrist.”
The view is not the one thing that is leave this, oh no. There is a t-shirt aided by the NASA logo design regarding front side plus the Kojima Productions motto regarding straight back with EVA suit details, as well as a Ludens sacoche, which can be French for case. They mightn’t phone it a Ludens case?
Then the pièce de résistance: “Exclusively within the Rare Edition, Ludens Mask is just a 1:1 life size collectible that’s in fact wearable—Everyone people is Ludens.”
Yeah you read that right. This thing is known as, plus it deserves the all-caps, AREA LUDENS and will come in the Ludens Mask Rare Edition. 100 of those is going to be available, and they’re produced up to a film props standard (whatever which means, I seen some pretty bad film props) through “Multi Jet Fusion procedure”. Which does appear to be instead a fantastic option to produce a mask.
SPACE LUDENS is going to be “presented in a unique package containing a steel numbered dish with specific quantity plus tailored booklet associated with collaboration tale. Extra unique art maneuvering gloves are within the Rare Edition.” Including art maneuvering gloves for the skull mask? This collaboration has some chutzpah alright.
Should you have got the things I imagine is going to be thousands of bucks extra, the view etcetera goes on-sale on 27 September. Anicorn’s different collaborations all appear to offer away pretty quickly, which is going to be no exclusion. Most people can, perhaps, stare into area.
