Gnome needed for Garden Device

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
Our company, GnomeBOT, is working on a garden automation tool and we need a design for the product case. The case will look like a gnome, and will

How did we come up with a gnome?
Think about the home automation tools you've seen. They either look like a 90's router (box with antennas out of the top), or they're sleek modern works of art. Think about the Nest thermostat. What does it look like? Your grandma's thermostat, right? Except much more modern. That's what we're going for: a nod at your grandma's gnome, but modern.

Points of consideration:
> Our device is a gnome, and a computer/robot. We're looking for a modern way to blend the two.
>The gnome will house electronic components including sensors (with external probes which will plug in via ports), a 16x2 LCD, a PCB, and an antenna.
>The final product will be waterproof. Avoid any areas that could pool water.
>The product will go outside in customer's yards. Consider a base or large footprint to keep the unit stable
>There will be plugs for sensors connecting to the gnome. Please plan an area for 5-8 probes to connect.
>Design will need to be printed as 2 halves that come together once the internal components are in place.
Wants:
We'll be evaluating each design based on these criteria:
>Design asthetics: Does the gnome look modern, and like it belongs alongside other sleek home automation devices?
>Emotion: Does the gnome's feature, facial expression, pose, apparel, etc. convey modern, happy, wise?
>Dimensions: Would the figurine fit a 4"x2"x7" cavity inside for components?
>Creative LCD placement: Does the design incorporate the LCD in a creative and natural way?
>Usability: Is the design and file something we can continue to tweak and iterate?
>3D printability: Can the design be printed easily?
Don't Wants:
We're not looking for a troll, or a dwarf, or a smurf, or an elf, or Santa.
Software:
  1. Blender
Additional Information
Gnome should be 10" tall.

For your submission, please submit a rendering as a jpeg.

We'll also need an stl and obj file so we can 3D print the gnome.

*****EDIT 7/3/2017********************

Of the designs we've received so far, our favorite look is #42. However, this design does not show how the case would fit together, etc.

Our favorite design files are from #45. This designer has spent time and attention on how the case would fit together, how it would stand, where the screen and plugs would go, etc.

If someone were able to combine the design of #42 with technical details of #45, we'd have a winner!

*****EDIT 7/6/2017********************
Just about 10 hours to go! We've narrowed the results down to what we believe are the top few entries based on our needs.

One quick reminder to all designers that we are looking for a case for an expensive piece of technology. This isn't a toy. We do have a playful marketing piece, but we have to present a device, not a toy.

#102 Gnomebot V4 Face update by Pablo Gosso
Hi Gardener ,
This is what I meant when I say we can make it less toy-like and more neutral.
Here the pose is more important and its face is neutral so you can gather your attention to the screen.
As you can see I also tilt the head to be facing up. This is a short fellow so it should be facing towards people
Looking forward to your feedback, Pablo

#40 Modern GnomeBot by nike23
My submission is a modern version of the Gnome concept. I decided to approach the project as an abstract design rather the literal Gnome form so the device would better fit among typical electronic devices, however, the concept still has the feel and emotion of a gnome-like figure.

#41 GnomeBOT V1 by Pablo Gosso
Sorry to all people. I was not aware it is prohibited to submit blurry images or concepts. Is only that I got bad experience with previous contests, when "similar" concept from other designers were submitted.
Just trying to keep my ideas hidden but if we all share we all grow as designers.
Hope he best design wins. Pablo

#71 Gnomebot V2 by Pablo Gosso
Hi Gardener.
Following your advice and taste for Robot look and feel and taking a great risk I submit this completely new design.
I added new main features:
1) Active Screen Design for LCD mouth Area.This takes out
2) Also, I modify the sensor placement system from the previous model for a more versatile system where you can put the sensor where you need it to be.
3) Like in last design I created a ribbon material groove, on the closing of 2 halves, to allow proper silicon bonding and prevent and make this Model iP67 according to like requirements.
Sorry guy, seeing how intense this contest got, I`m going blind on this last concept I present.
Hope you find it interesting, I really enjoy working on it. Pablo

#12 GnomeBOT Concept V1 by Martin Boillat
Here is my first entry for the GnomeBOT challenge. I tried to make it more of a modern, kind and aesthetically pleasing gnome, instead of a traditional one with only a slight redesign.
I included the ports bay you asked for on the back of the gnome, with the possibility of adding a pannel to hide them all.
I also designed a large cavity inside, which can be used to fit all the needed componements.
The whole structure is optimized for 3D printing, and the LCD housing is integrated on the front side.
I'm awaiting for your feedback,
Regards,
-Martin

Hi everyone,

The contest is over, so if you want to talk to each other about the designs, entries etc, I appreciate if you can do that privately or to open a new thread in the forums, that will be visible for everyone.

As you know, each designer who participated to the contest (and the buyer also) receive email notifications when a comment is posted, so is really annoying to receive notifications each day, even the contest ended.

As for showing the winning entries, I'm sure that Pablo and Eira could do that (in the forums or privately), since the contest ended.

Hopefully this will be the last post here, at the contest page. There is no need to reply to my comment, you could send me a message if something is not clear.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks again,
Lucian

After congratulations,
In the recommendations and feedback you tell me that you like the beard and the 2nd winner has no beard! .... I would like to see the first winner to do my analysis and synthesis. To remind you I made 20 entries and I worked hard in this project.

Message for siti,: you deserve it (I wanted to clarify the ambiguous choice)

Either way, let me express one thing:
I really don't feel good about how the client is cannibalizing the concepts trying to make us use things from other concepts into a Frankenstein product. I really feel bad about Zerroug who has though and designed that shape in the first place, and no one would have a clue how to design it if it were for him. For me, this is really unethical.

La'al Ratty Locomotive & Coaches Creation Contest of Funitude!! :D
I basically need No. 7 River Esk. It's a 2-8-2 with 8-wheeled tender in lnwr blackberry livery with black, off-white, & red lining. The other stuff can be found in the pictures. The Non Open Coaches are blue & white, the open coaches are maroon. I'd like them ALL to be ready to run *that means I need the chassis motor built in, built in the locomotive itself of course*. The couplings are 3-link couplings. The coaches are bogie used. I can add the bogies, I just need it to where they just need to be screwed into the floor of the coaches :). Also, the engine and coaches need brake pipes on both ends of both the engine & coaches. Also, there are 10 coaches, only 3 are open coaches, the rest are the regular ones.
