Designed for game, build for real

I spent some time looking around concept sites today — looking for an idea. I need some object that two characters I’m messing about with might use to leave messages. . Just about everyone who is or will be an industrial designer is blogging and developing highly rendered concepts online, so it’s not hard to fly though hundreds of ideas.

From mobile phones to cars, household items – you name it – there are highly talented people doing it. During my travels, I noticed this video – where a car — designed for a game – has been put into real life. There was a time Industrial Design students sketched out ideas with Pantone Markers — today they are building cars in games, racing them and creating movies from their virtual toys. This is a great video to make the point about how easily influential 3D has become in the development of — well everything.
