RoboGoby T-Shirt

For the past week and a half we have been coming up with ways to fundraise for our project. We have been working on an Indiegogo campaign that we will publish soon. We have also met with a few local businesses. We also came up with the idea of using t-shirts sales as fundraiser/promotion gig. We spent a while deciding what the shirt would look like. Today we finalized the image and the text on the front of the shirt.  We have decided to have a robotic looking fish that is modeled after a Goby, as well as the words, "Project RoboGoby."

Project RoboGoby Fundraising T-shirt
The entire thing was made by Nick in Photoshop Elements 8, though some pieces were modified from pictures found online. Everyone please give a BIG shout-out to Nick – he spent a ton of time on this design.

The basic shape of the fish is modeled after the dimensions and fins of a goby. We decided that the most important robotic parts would be: gears, propellors, sensors, and lights/cameras. In the end we decided to make it look fairly simple so the design isn't too overwhelming for the observer (edited out a lot of the extra material). The shirt is blue to represent underwater and the fish is green mostly because it stands our on a blue back ground. The fish is made of 28 different layers.

The back of the shirt is going to have the phrase: "Limbeck, I don't know what it means either." This is because we are always asked how we came up with the name and what it means. We are also going to order four shirts for ourselves with backs that say: "Head Engineer."
