Unfold Studio's Virtual Pottery Wheel Comes Close to My Remote Sculpting Fantasy

(8 years ago)
I want you to put this in your living roomIf I were a famous sculptor, I'd sell you a block of raw granite that you'd put in your house in California, surrounded by a bunch of internet-connected industrial robot arms with sculpting attachments. In my apartment in New York I'd have an identical-sized chunk of granite. Whenever I felt like sculpting for a few hours, I'd put on some internet-connected gloves that tracked my hand motions and I'd begin taking chunks out of the block. Over in California, the robot arms would simultaneously whir to life and carve exactly what I was carving. So over a period of a few weeks, this sculpture would begin to take shape at random times of the day and you'd see the process happening.Although all of the technology to make that happen currently exists, I've yet to see anyone do it. The closest thing I've seen to this pipe dream of mine is Antwerp-based Unfold Studio's L'Artisan Electronique, a "virtual pottery wheel" that tracks your hand motions while you shape a laser-projected rotating shape. A printer that looks rather like a pastry tube then extrudes your creation in clay. It all happens in the same room and it's not as cool (or messy) as my remote sculpting idea, but mark my words, it's just a matter of time:(more...)

Bill's Design Talks with Branko Lukic: A Radical New Approach to Design

(8 years ago)
Does form always follow function? Within the world of product design, only a few lone voices challenge this convention. Among this group of visionary individuals is Branko Lukic, Founder and Principal of Nonobject Studio. Lukic's Nonobject design philosophy presents an entirely new way of developing and experiencing the world of objects and our relationship with them. Its startling yet intuitive insights can inspire people far beyond the worlds of design and architecture, including those engaged in business, education, medicine, product development, science and research, and virtually any field of endeavor. Nonobject addresses the intangible space that can exist between people and objects—both physical and digital—creating objects that fill us with surprise and delight. This Wednesday, Bill Moggridge (Director of the Cooper-Hewitt and Core77 columnist) chats with Branko Lukic (a Core77 Design Awards Jury Captain for Speculative Objects/Concepts) at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum!

Tradition vs Progress: The Art of the American Fire Helmet

(8 years ago)
There is an old adage in the firefighting community that the profession is 150years of tradition unimpeded by progress.The original fire helmet, then called a fire cap, was designed in 1731 by Jacobus Turk for the Fire Department of New York in order to distinguish the department from competitors. (Scarily enough, firefighting was once privatized—just like in the movie 'Gangs of New York.')An ornamental eagle—with no related significance—was added to the helmet design around 1825. A 1930 New Yorker article points out that the eagle "sticks up in the air, it catches... on telephone wires, it is always getting dented... every so often, some realist points out how much safer and cheaper it would be to do away with the eagle, but the firemen always refuse." The eagle still exists as an integral part of the helmet today.The colors of the helmet, however, do have importance. Black generally denotes a private/basic firefighter, yellow or red can denote a lieutenant or captain, and white denotes a chief. Sometimes all of a department's helmets are black, while only the colors of the helmet badges denote rank. Lastly, Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms (ATF) fire investigator helmets are bright blue.(more...)
