Render Fast, Easy And Amazing With KeyShot 4 – Try It FREE!

Designers, you have my immense respect for your talents in rendering your ideas. This is one area that I fall short and therefore happy to learn that the KeyShot 4 doesn’t require any specialized expertise. The program has 6 main buttons rather than hundreds of parameters, options, sliders, and adjustments found in traditional rendering programs. It is the perfect tool for anyone involved with 3D data: industrial designers, mechanical engineers, marketing professionals, photographers, CG experts – you name it. The only limitation is our creativity!

The iWatch Wet Dream

The iWatch Wet Dream

While some of my friends argue that an iWatch would be a failure, the success of TikTok and LunaTik go to prove that wearable gadgets on the wrist are more than welcome. Keeping this in mind, designer Tolga Tuncer capitalizes on the iWave with his version of the iWatch concept.

Flipper-inspired Speed Boat

Flipper-inspired Speed Boat

Throughout history humans have looked to dolphins with awe, envy & inspiration because of the animal’s speed & strength in the oceans. In this stunning example of biomimicry, the Delfino sonic boat merges inspirations from both dolphins & Japanese trains to create a bullet-fast yet super-efficient watercraft. The “fusiform” shape is rounded at the front and slowly tapers at the tail, allowing water to flow inseparably from the front to the back. Besides the technical advantages, the aesthetic is just amazing.

A Green Solution for City Self Sufficiency

A Green Solution for City Self Sufficiency

Set in the distant future, this large-scale urban farming concept called Greenbelt aims to provide cities with a way to utilize their own resourcefulness rather than depend on costly imported goods. The Greenbelt actually surrounds the city, using vertical, space-saving structures to support aquapronics (fish farming combined with soil free growing). Water is led to a hydroponic system where by-products from the fish are filtered out by plants as vital nutrients. Cleansed water is then recirculated back to the fish and the process continues.

Designed with such minimal style, the Minimato table deserves an equally minimal explanation: 5 bars, 1 table top. We love it. Nuff said!

Get The Message?

Get The Message?

The Message Bubble Light can be a good way to communicate your feelings or send across love notes to that special person. On the flipside it can also be an innovative way to send a break-up message! I know I’m being a pessimist here but I like the design-centric way you can use the transparent clear stand to write additional personal messages on the board. More like ‘I love you, but we need to talk’; when a woman says that…we all know what it means. What fun!

Never miss another sunset...

Never miss another sunset…

Almost unrecognizable as a clock, the limited edition Sun Set wall clock (available here) is unlike any other timepiece out there in both aesthetic and functionality! Beyond indicating precision time, the design also shows the sun’s exact position in the sky, the moment of sunrise and sunset, as well as the length of day and night.
