Ideal candidates will be T-shaped designers with 2-8 years of experience in product development with a high level of Solidworks surfacing skills. They'll be required to design and develop complex components for the motorcycle industry and should also possess the ability to apply commonly-used engineering practices and manufacturing processes.
A student team from TU Delft in the Netherlands has designed and produced a fully functional 3D printed stainless steel bicycle. The students designed the frame of the bicycle to demonstrate the potential of a new method for 3D printing metal. The students achieved the goal of their
Cycling has long been hailed as a kind of all-purpose urban panacea, an all-purpose solution for congestion and the first-and-last-mile—getting people to and from a transportation hub. Now, Beijing's People's Architecture Office has designed a bike — by a slight stretch of the imagination — into a destination in itself.
Over the weekend, Belgian cyclist Femke van den Driessche had her bike impounded at the UCI Cyclocross World Championships—and it was discovered that there was a motor hidden inside. Femke van den Driessche "After one lap of the world championships, UCI took Femke's bike in the pit area and tested
Let's have a bit of fun here: Given that it's now easier to start up a replica car company in the U.S., let's say that you had the funding to do it and unlimited licensing options. Which car design would you choose to revive? Remember that: - Under the Low
Unless you're Izzy Swan, a vehicle is something you buy. It's ready to go; they're turnkey affairs, which is probably where that phrase came from. But this interesting concept by a pair of industrial designers proposes an alternate system, whereby a corporation would sell the motive power and local communities
Starting up a new car company from scratch is just about impossible. That's because there are massive regulatory hurdles to clear, courtesy of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency. Once in a blue an Icon or Revology Cars manages to pull it off, but it's
Who'd have thought that the once strange and marginalized form of design practice–discursive design–would be promoted and even employed by national governments? What a difference a few decades can make.
Ferrari describes their Top Design School Challenge as "a competition in which the world's most prestigious design institutes vie for supremacy." This here is their third installment, where students from some 50 design schools entered; as the judging rounds advanced, 46 schools were knocked off of the list. That left
Help build a suite of consumer mobile apps enabling a killer drone service on iOS/Android. Your role will be to help build the specifications/UI/mockups for Verifly's Android product. You have demonstrated experience developing stunning, developer-ready UI/UX flows and visuals, building and maintaining app workflows, detailed specifications, wireframes, and pixel-perfect mockups.
Ferrari's, like most supercars, polarize opinion. Flash and brash, or svelte and stunning…depending on your outlook, or possibly, the cars' vintage. But to any automotive designer or car obsessive, there's no denying Ferrari's hallowed place in history. Finding myself in Italy visiting family over the Christmas break, I made sure
As I've noted before, not everyone has a garage or similar place to store a bicycle; sometimes bikes need to be sorted in apartments, offices or studios. And designers keep developing new ways for end users to do just that. The industrial bike rack from BLR Design comes with either
I just did a Google search for an oceanic salvage periodical called "Tug Magazine" and was surprised to see it didn't return anything filthy. In any case I've been reading about the MV Tricolor, a huge Norwegian freighter carrying 2,800 BMWs, Volvos and Saabs that went down in the English
Many of the goods we buy (and design) travel across the world on container ships, which we've all seen. This is what they look like when things are going right: However, cargo ship voyages are like Valentine's Day dinners in that they sometimes go catastrophically wrong. (I'm not sure why
In 2007 in America, no matter what kind of car you drove, someone else had died in that exact model. With over 200 million licensed drivers in the U.S. driving everything under the sun, that's to be expected. But what the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found last year was
"The concept was born out of necessity" is what both Lore and Stefan tell me independently when asked about how their projects came about. Not surprisingly, necessity is often a great basis for good design. Tucked away in the basement of the AIT Architektursalon in Ehrenfeld, the two students
It's currently 21 degrees below freezing in Detroit and everyone would rather be driving a convertible along the coast of anywhere else, which means it's high season for the city's biggest annual event. If you've never been to an executive-level convention for an industry you aren't a part of, I
In 2013, Sheffield, UK-based Mike Hudson quit his job and started giving his possessions away. "I put things outside onto the street with notes saying 'free'. I gave away the sofas, the bed, chairs, and tables. I gave away my shirts, trousers and shoes to the charity shop on Ecclesall
Whenever people say we'll one day upload our consciousnesses into the cloud, I point out that I can't even get my podcasts to sync. Although my consciousness is probably not more than a gig or two, I have little faith such a data transfer would go off without a hitch.
The ADFC is Germany's bicycle advocacy group, and they've come up with a funny term: MAMIL, which stands for Middle-Aged Man in Lycra. What they're referring to are studies that show it's typically macho dudes in their 30s and 40s who feel most safe riding a bike, particularly in adverse
When I was in Hue, Vietnam, I met four schoolteachers who all lived in a single-room shack. The four women could only afford two bicycles between them, so the way they commuted was two to a bike--with the one sitting on the rear placing her feet on the pedals alongside
NYC law states that by 2020, half of Gotham's yellow cab fleet (currently 13,437 cars total) must be wheelchair-accessible. Given the design of your average taxi, including the Nissan NV200 that's been selected as the city's official taxicab, that's no easy feat. For the NV200 retrofit, the task fell
As the idea of autonomous cars becomes more widely accepted, there's a challenge that tomorrow's automotive designers will need to tackle: how to design desirability into the autonomous car? Industry consensus is that the move to autonomous cars is a gradual but inevitable process. We already expect increasingly more
We know what you're thinking: "Oh, another video that starts off with gentle folk music and dolly shots of wood shavings." But no, this one's different. First off, the guy in this one's got a British accent, so there. Secondly, from some angles he kind of looks like a cross
Ideal candidates can lead creative brand executions nationally and globally for major automotive clients. They'll have 2-5 years of experience and both strong computer rendering ability in Rhino+Vray and/or 3D MAX+Vray and a strong understanding of 3D space and multi-experience strategy. Understanding of interactive and digital interface applications a must!
While everyone from Tesla to Uber to Google is working on driverless cars, there are plenty of inventors who aren't interested in roadgoing vehicles at all. Here are some of the stranger inventions, experiments and people-moving prototypes we've seen this year. Kuniaki Sato's WalkCar: French Architect Creates Spider-like Personal Off-Road
The animated GIF is ideally suited to certain types of subject matter. Adorable animals? Check. Out-of-sync Super Bowl dancers? Of course. Confused John Travolta? Yes, please. But product design—not so much. Nevertheless, 2015 did see a number of design-centric GIFs worth commemorating. Here are our ten favorites. 10. Introducing BB-8
This year has seen steady movement towards a new age of automobility. Headlines celebrated the introduction of Tesla's Autopilot system. We experienced the first widespread vehicle recall due to hacking vulnerabilities. The underlying ethics of algorithms being written for autonomous vehicles were discussed. These technological breakthroughs, essential security enhancements and
Most of you know that Darth Vader's helmet was, unlike a motorcycle helmet, comprised of two pieces. Design studies written on the subject indicated that he refused to wear a chin strap, necessitating a two-piece design; were his helmet and facemask only one piece, the opening would have to be
It's time for some automotive eye candy, in three different flavors. All were shot by Luke Huxham, the Japan-based Kiwi expat filmmaker whose work we previously saw in "In Tokyo, at the Intersection of Gangster Culture and Lamborghinis." The first video is a low-key look at a highly unusual situation
Here's a concept I'm surprised didn't come from America: A drive-in supermarket. It's another fascinating patent application from Semenov Dahir Kurmanbievich, the Russian inventor behind the in-mouth CNC mill. The video could definitely use some editing, but if you stick it out to the end, you'll see the floors above
You'll be responsible for the design of all products and brands of the Volvo Group. You should have a Masters degree and the ability to lead and inspire the global Product Design team to excel in creativity, excellent form development, and professional design execution. Knowledge of multi-brand management a must!
Every once in a while on the streets of Manhattan, I'll see one of these zipping by: While I love the idea of parents being able to cycle with their children in tow, as a former first responder I shudder to consider what the safety implications are in the event
