The spacecraft function (semiotic) symbols for the movie Alien and subsequent series, designed by Ron Cobb
It's amazing how these are clearly distinct at a distance and easy to remember
@tiphra I love that site. The article on the movie Moon was my first time reading anything from there and it was amazing
@cypnk I just found it now. Didn't read anything properly. Gotta check it better later.
@cypnk ya'll talking about semiotic standard? Have
y'all seen this?
@cypnk So cool! Always loved these and the level of detail in Alien. ☺️
also note that they still work without color information
and that orientation is irrelevant, AFAICT
@cypnk will use in actual space ship
@pesco Totally should!
BTW, The DIY space station is project No. 2775 for me
@cypnk noted for future reference.
@cypnk I love these. So clear and easy to distinguish.
Note: Yellow is NOT our friend, but red and green are.
@cypnk Exhaust reminds one of the Atari logo.
@Shufei I was wondering who else saw the similarity ;)
They probably evolved organically so it’s most likely unrelated. Still, it’s an interesting comparison
@cypnk They all have that circa 1980 space LEGO look. So it’s probably just the natural ambient aesthetic of the era... a new space race, a new push for space science, and a new rocket ship spewing rainbow exhaust on takeoff. Zoom!
All are welcome ALL ARE WELCOME...
@cypnk I love them all, BT have a special place in my heart for coffee...
@cypnk I have these on my keyboard
In space, no-one can hear your Cherry MX Blues
