Re: Vehicles spotted in your neighborhood

Not too hard to imagine why with a bunch of road safe features like an Ezra Brooks Kentucky Bourbon bottle for radiator fluid (held securely in place with chicken wire), a beer keg for a gas tank and a shotgun mounted to the roof of the cab in case things go sideways. Ahaha! Love it. Here are two I...

Re: Royalty Based Agreement for "Soft"Goods

I'm not in the soft-goods industry but I'll do my best to answer your questions- The concern of charging too much, and fees vs royalties- Always charge what you're worth, don't short change yourself. A freelancing friend told me "if people aren't negotiating with your first quote, you aren't chargin...

Re: 3D Printer cost per cubic inch

This is awesome, thank you!

My only experience is with Makerbots - they're cool, but somewhat unreliable requiring part updates and mods to work effectively. Maybe they've fixed that on the newer models though. I'm surprised the Replicator 2x material cost is as much as it is!

Re: Compact Ambulance

A third wheel makes sense, maybe consider placing it in the front with dynamic steering, so the wheels lean when they turn. Overall I think the idea is interesting - I've seen ambulances get stuck in city traffic when cars have really no where to go and it takes precious time for them to figure it o...

Re: Creativity techniques

We did a project in school where we could only modify a square card 3 times by either: -cutting -folding (creasing) -bending It was quick to iterate and we turned our best forms into wall sconces. Simple, but interesting results. Reminds me a bit of your project. Sometimes setting limits helps you t...

Re: ideas for modular furniture

Is the modular aspect designed yet? By first figuring out how the furniture reconfigures, attaches, and works as a system it might then reveal the best units to work with. As far as interesting functionality, if you nail the modular aspect that alone may be interesting enough. Consider why this syst...

fireworks design

Does anyone know if there are fireworks designers? I wonder how that works, I'd be interested to see what that design process is like.

Re: vessyl

I'm also skeptical... seems like technology for technology's sake. I think we're only going to see more Vessyl-like products as companies try and inject technology wherever they can. While there are of course potential benefits I see two hurdles: usefulness, and usability. Usefulness: the technology...

Re: Google doodle

Hah, maybe they're bitter.

Or maybe because there's no games today. If that's true then there shouldn't be one tomorrow, and they should be back on Friday.

Re: What is the tool you miss most for your design work?

I have a fascination with the kuka robots. I'd love to get my hands on a used one and learn how to program it to play with. Not sure what I'd use it for. They're just awesome.
