What about the term "biomimicary"? I'm sure you are aware of it. I know that engineering company like Altair has developed a software that uses bio-mechanics to simulate the best possible structural design, which really helps designer and engineers design more efficiently. I'm sure your expertise in...

If anything it shows how unimportant hardware design has become in phones. I'm sure those guys at Belkin or Griffin or whoever have to work with the dimensions of Apple(and other) devices will disagree. When screen gets bigger than hardware's physical presence gets smaller, its significance goes up...

Nuclear has it's environmental downside as most people already know. What can be worse is how it impacts people politically. There has been cases where wealthy countries don't want to deal with its own nuclear waste and pay third world countries to take them. To me, pretty much every aspect of this ...

Which is more efficient/clean?

I've always found answers to today's problems from past approaches, so this got me to think about a particular thing on household energy. Is it more efficient and less damaging to cook or heat with firewood that you pick up from the forest floor, or using "modern" fuel like gas or electricity? Ok, I...

Looks like polystyrene to me.

Are you packing these in Asia or in the US? If in the US, I'd try local modelshops or whoever does vacuum forming as mentioned above.

My friend recommended me this:

Bought it, haven't dug deep into it yet, but the first few pages are spot on.

One question. I noticed that some photos were taken off the gallery, mine included. Plus, this afternoon when I looked at them, there were 7 pages, now there's only 6. Any idea what's going on?

I managed to compress a 80pg pdf (full of images) from 200mb to just 5mb.

If you don't have any sketch in your portfolio, then you won't even get an interview, let alone showing them off.

Arhh 2am here, can't sleep! Ok, your approach is just too literal. If I read it right, you are taking away physical buttons just to "reduce" material? Does that mean the body of the phone will remain? A few questions: Why? How does taking buttons away help? I mean, iPhone essentially took away most ...

On my first day of class in college here in the United States, I asked my professor if I can go to the rest room.

I think that was a cultural shock to him :lol:

No blind spot? Closer to the center of your vision?
I don't think they will place a mirror at a place where you can't see.
Also, if you drive a fast car(or drive a car fast), theoretically you don't need a side mirror.

The word I will use to describe the original Sterling Moss is Gorgeous. I don't know what word I will use to describe this SLR version, but I can see Bruce Wayne driving one. I think the overall design is fine. It's a departure from the classic organic and flowing surfaces but I am still not sure ho...

If he's talking about each rendering of the same design but with different CMF, then yes, I do believe that 45min is reasonable. For me, I create paths in Rhino, export them to Illustrator and go from there. So if I set up my paths right in Rhino, I can be cranking different renderings of different ...

Most of our experience comes from sponsored studios ... IMO that is not "professional experience". It's not any different from a non-sponsored studio except that it has a more specific goal. The point of internships is not about the projects you do, it's for the experience to be working as a real t...
