Do you rely on hastily scribbled notation or tab when four- or six-string inspiration hits? Or maybe you sit in front of your smartphone and hit record. Or even just try and remember, only to completely forget by the time you reach the rehearsal room. Denmark’s TC Electronic has now come up with the Wiretap Riff Recorder, a new way to capture and catalog your killer riffs that’s always at your feet.

For several years now, we’ve known that the Moon is not as dry as was assumed for decades, in fact our satellite is harboring a good amount of water. Now a team based at the Open University in the UK is painting a more detailed picture of exactly how that water was transported to the Moon and trapped on what seems like an outwardly arid rock.

When you say missing the involvement of experts- what do you mean?
In my experience experts with years (15+) experience in relevant industries are the driving factors in such projects.
There is a complex balance of requirements, constraints and regulations and experts have a clear overall picture of how to approach these projects.
They will be able to tell you ‘put the motor a few inches back here’ and it may tip the entire scale for the value of the entire system.
So if you include in your documentation what role you as students played, and what came from experts/professors, this is a big plus to me in presenting the design process.
Working on design competitions is also a nice way to gain skills, knowledge, experience in the field and exposure, they give you a deadline and you have to come up with something concrete and workable.
I love napkin sketches because they are so spontaneous and often much closer to an original idea than designer sketches. I love seeing how famous products evolved from a very simple sketch, take a look at Gehry’s sketches for example.
Brilliant! Thanks for the upload Yo, you make it look so easy!
Using underlays is something that I tend not to do unless I’m working on an exploded sketch or something of that nature, but I can see it definitely helps to get the initial design down and then use overlays to finalise.
I’ll have to make this more of a standard technique I think!
If you are going to work on baidu or any specific China-related projects then you should!
Chevys, noce man. Something that actually improves the world. I love it.
Thanks Yo i really appreciate it. i have only truly designed 3 or 4 products that i can say directly helped to improve the world vs simply provide a product that simply gives some type of gratification. Not that i am not proud of all the products i have had a chance to work on or admire the work of others, it just simply that when i get the opportunity to work on these and then see them come to market i greatly appreciate the opportunity to do so.
