Bristol based designer?

Fresh Design Works are starting a monthly social event for designers of real, tangible objects working in Bristol and the surrounding areas.

One of our key aims is to create a much needed community for Industrial, Product, and Furniture Designers, Design Engineers, Designer/Makers, and Inventors in the South West. Our long term aim is to launch a public design event showcasing what the west has to offer.

Meetups to be the first Wednesday of every month, at the Mud Dock cafe from 7pm onwards.

More info and the LinkedIn Group can be found here

Do your part to save the rainforest…

I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t considered everything in this video. It’s good to know what we CAN do to help though.

I tried a 2-D printer once, and the paper jammed.
So now I just painstakingly re-create my paper copies by hand, like a medieval monk.

i tried using paper, but the edges crumpled
so now i just chisel my commandments into stone, like old testament god

I tried using stone, but it cracked and broke.
Now I just scream everything at passersby, hoping they’ll remember what I said so I can ask them about it when I need it.

I tried shouting things at passersby but they ignored me.
Now I emit allohormones in a gypsobelum that bonds selectively with the recipient’s hemolymph to reconfigure their bursa copulax into a copulatory canal. I can only say one thing, “I want to mate with you,” but really, what else ever needs to be said?

Ha! This is basically the first 3 months of owning a 3D printer

Uni-directional treadmill could be the future of gaming…

With the development of products like the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset, many people are suggesting that the future of gaming will, along with improved graphics, become VR based as well.

The Infinideck goes one further by developing a treadmill that can be walked on in any planar direction, not just one direction like the kind you would find at the gym.

VR is already incredibly immersive, but adding a floor that would allow you to control movement by walking or running would really help the realism, and help curb obesity to boot.

"Revolutionary" new camera…

…makes you wish yours was this cool doesn’t it? The whole advert has a certain familiarity about it too.

Thats because the whole video is a spoof. A send up, a parody, a satirical commentary on the current state of product marketing. And I must say they’ve hit the nail on the head.

Perhaps this is what it will feel like watching adverts of today in 20 years time.

Rescued Eames Designed Chairs…
…Found these in an empty building. Originally designed by (my heroes) Charles and Ray Eames circa 1950 for Herman Miller, this particular style was first produced in the 70s.
Will repair and restore them, then re-home them in the studio.
