“The Gaaha is always on at a low level, scanning the user’s surroundings, building a mental schematic that the user can access at any time. When activated, the Gaaha will provide directions to a location provided that the destination has been previously recorded. The Noble version only retains the scanning function, while the Nuva version can map out entire islands.”
The Kanohi Gaaha is infamously worn by everyone’s favorite hoax: Toa Voriki. No mask power was ever actually given, so I thought it’d be nice to add some flavor text. As someone who’s always up for making odd concepts work, I really wanted to turn his star-shaped MS-paint Pakari into something… good-looking. Another reason is because I’m a novice 3D artist, and I wanted to get some practice. My first attempt was alright; it just looked off from the sides. It’s also just a really poorly made 3D model. I’ll give another crack at it soon.
(and yes, I did design a Gaaha Nuva)
