The future of 3D Printing

“Imagine a world where we can 3D print a full-size cargo plane or quickly produce a body part to save someone’s life. Through additive manufacturing or 3D printing, we are bringing people closer to products and solving challenges in new ways. We are pushing the limits of this technology to produce parts quickly and affordably with geometry and design that has never been possible before”

So much engineering here

It’s just the rear wing of a McLaren car but there is so much engineering in here! It can contract and expand according to the driver needs, the speed of the car and the external conditions (weather and road ones). It is not amazing just from the mechanical side of view but also from the sensors and electronics that are controlling it. And on top of all of those, the rear carbon fiber diffuser together with the polygonal shape exhaust are making a beautiful combination that worth the admiration! Yeah, more engineering porn here!

Draw me a watch

This is the Hublot MP-05 watch. It’s also know as the LaFerrari watch as it is designed specifically and inspired by the latest Ferrari hyper car. You can find multiple picture of this engineering masterpiece but the ones I am uploading here are a little bit more… rare. Ok, I am not saying that you can’t find those online… I am just saying that 95% of the photos are showing just the actual watch.

But there is still so much perfection and inspiration from just those lines on a paper. Somehow those drawings are looking wonderful to me! It’s the step just after the lonely time of imagination. The thoughts of the designer that are translated to real objects through the drawing on the paper.
