Lightbulb Ecomodder Desktop Wallpaper

I've tried using the search function and googling but cannot seem to find anything so here goes:

I hereby kindly request that the forum officials maybe assisted by some Photoshop/image editing wizards create a big enough image that can be used as a screen saver with the ecomodder logo etc. Maybe even some futuristic/"hypermilistic" looking car or whatever ideas might come up.

I am very illiterate when it comes to editing images on the computer so I can't help with the technical part...maybe some ideas if I get something that will be worth mentioning.

Please reply if you have something on your mind.

What's on my mind isn't exactly what you asked for, but I'll share.

Windows 7 has a feature where you can throw a bunch of pictures in a folder, and it will automatically rotate through them as your desktop backgrounds. So I created a folder called "Background Rotation", and whenever I see an image I like, I throw it in there. I've got a few pics of the Göttinger Ei, some of my car, some of Botsapper's renderings, various cars in wind tunnels, some graphs out of Hucho and Piechna, and this:

Notice the dropped upper frame tube?

...That's a classic signature that it's a WOMEN'S BIKE.

I'm with Laurentiu, a hi-res EM logo would be nice. How about full window sized cling that doubles as window tint?

I like metaphors in photo.

ecomod can have those too...


this is nopt a metaphor...but is an aircooled vw with an engine tucked neatly in the front of this trike.. talk of natural aero...this one is simply beautiful.



I figured this one out after taking photo. the little sube is ten geared, and 3 main bearings. The chassis has a flow I deciphered, it was more than funny to realize how the rigs were parked on either side of it. It does state loudly the little car does alot more work than itself.

photos like this... cars defending themselves, just by existing.

This is a good idea. Darin, do you have a high-res version of the logo? I don't have anything on my new computer...

Thanks for the response, i hope it will raise some interest and get some "sweet" wallpaper(s) that we can decorate out screens with....In my head right now I'm thinking 100MPG+ looking vehicle proudly displaying the ecomodder logo, going down road, plenty of greenery, wind turbines....

Great looking concept, I would personally like something a bit more "Star-Trek-ish"



Maybe we should first establish which car(s) is going to be the lucky one
