In case you missed it, we're celebrating 20 years of Core77 with a look into the future in the Core77 Tech-tacular. Over the next few weeks we'll be exploring the myriad ways that new technologies are shaping the future of design: the ways we ideate, create and relate to design objects.
Wondering about wearables? Carla Diana dives into the wonderful world of wearable tech with a look at what happens when the world of technology, fashion and wellness collide. From the technology that occupies real estate on your wrist to the technology that occupies real estate of our cities, Sam Jacob tempers excitement around the emerging Smart City by examining the stakeholders and exploring what cities are and what we think they could or should be.
When we promise a Tech-tacular, we mean it. Get a daily dose of Tech Specs, our interview series with designers about the digital tools incorporated into their work flow—computer setups, most-used software, favorite apps, biggest tech gripes and related issues. So far, we've spoken to Thomas Murray of Bresslergroup about digital sketching and corded mice, Paul Hoppe of Local Projects about animating in Keynote, Ladies & Gentlemen Studio about getting out of CAD, Abe Burmeister of Outlier about working from his couch and open email platforms and Victoria Slaker of Ammunition about having an in-house FDM machine.
Not content to stay in the studio, we throw open the doors to the workshop to take a closer look at tools that are changing the way we design and build. First up, the Festool Domino and a comprehensive interview with woodworker and furniture designer Jory Brigham on the impact the Domino has had in his own practice.
And finally, we look to the Core77 Discussion Boards with a tech-focused Forum Frenzy. You still have time to weigh in on the automation argument (yay or nay?) and answer questions about modeling knowledge (deep or wide?). Or start your own discussion and survey the collective knowledge of the Core77 community.
