Carnegie Mellon - Motion Studies Lab - Motion studies revealed two interesting observations about the seating process. Hands and elbows were the most erratic lines and this could indicate they function to provide fine corrections to overall balance. Secondlyacurve can bedrawn through all initial points and the end points of the shoulders and head indicting a person can be seated in a tight curved space like a fuselage and still stand without hitting their head on the lower points of a curved ceiling.

Aerodynamic/hydrodynamic flow of people. - It is dangerous to compare people traffic to aerodynamics, but on a simple level there are similarities. Seated passengers can be rapidly evacuated through the row of doors next to every aisle. Entering passengers do not interact with exiting passengers. Which seats will become vacant is not predictable so only two large entry doors are used.
Render is not to scale. See model for detailed configuration.

Dreams of World Domination - I did work in the Pentagon once, but this is the closest I have come to world domination - a world map made out of Legos (TM) for a corporate presentation. In fact, the whole presentation was made from Legos (TM) and turned into slides. Look at my hair, this was the pre Powerpoint era and almost the pre PC era.

Magnetic drawing and painting surface - This is an IKEA hack. I use magnets on an IKEA magnet board to hold and flatten art while drawing and painting. You can even hold stencils and masks in place for air brushing techniques. The round steel board is ideal for aligning the art to the angle of your pencil stroke or direction of tool travel. As is, the metal disk will float off an angled drawing board, but I solved the problem with self stick furniture pads on the back.
