My current studio project is to design transportation for the refugees and displaced citizens of Africa. Seems that the brief didn't call for a bike, so why restrict yourself to bikes? Can you explain your reasoning for choosing a bike and not other modes of transportation? My "motto" is right answ...

You can't learn more about manufacturing and human factors then hands on experience from working in the industry. No school can prepare you enough for these two areas.

Correction: I thought I read "road sign" is to be blamed for bad traffic when it's actually "road Design". My bad. Sure there are certain roads that are badly designed, especially those where cars are coming on ramp and off ramp on the same lane, forcing dangerous lane merging between two flows of t...

As far as poor road design goes, consider where you are the next time a non-accident traffic jam occurs. My personal research, as well NDOT's shows that most traffic jams aren't occurring in wide open expanses of freeway, but around exits, on-ramps and other transitional locations, indicating that ...

Does it have to be a "desk" top computer? Doesn't it have to be "computer"? The first world like to tell others what they need and should have blah blah. Why not LISTEN to them this time? Of course, this will be a question for your professor who defined the brief for you guys. Africa is huge. Cultu...

MCow, I dissagree on the Taurus, have you seen the 2010 Camry? http://www.autoblog.com/2009/01/11/detroit-2009-toyota-shows-off-2010-camry/ Ha, Camry isn't the only Japanese sedan out there, and certainly not known for its styling. I personally don't think much about Toyota styling, but that's what...

I will also suggest you to look into Asian cities and how they tackle traffic. In countries like Taipei, Vietnam and Thailand, scooters are extremely popular. Take Taiwan as an example, scooters are the main transport for most families. Each adult will have one. It's very well a part of the local cu...

Mixed feelings about the Audi, mainly because of the new grill theme. The rest of the car also seems to be moving away from what Audi is previously known for(when most other companies are following BMW's edgy, flame surfacing, they stood by themselves). Now it seems to be going a little too far. It'...

The way I will reason it is, look, in this time, no matter how much you put in sales or marketing, the numbers will be down simply because people aren't spending. So that's important is we have to be prepared when people are ready to spend, therefore, we need to think about what people want to buy t...
