Yeah I had to make a decision with that. Proper dermatrodes are just TOO old school for me, I didnt think they would fit in with my slightly more sleek future. I guess they could work though. Good spot though!
I knew all along. When I came up with the design I did a lot of research into technology that was not too far off. My personal favorite is the flexbile LED stuff. They can have screens that roll up like paper. Crazy stuff. It will be cool seeing the new touch buttons appearing in phones.
Hey man, Thanks for all the comments. I really appreciate them. I'm not sure about taking direct influence, but considering Deus Ex is pretty much one of my favorite games ever. Im guessing it slips into it subtly, whenever I do cyberpunk stuff. Same with Ghost in the Shell I should think.
I do take commissions and have time for another freelance project. If you want, message/note me here on dA or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers!
