This is the one post for all things iPhone 6 Minimal Case
This case is important to me because it represents the chase for a higher standard of design and the way we think about holding our prized mobile devices. Once design was an after thought, now it’s becoming a standard issue of concern when it comes to the things we consume and use day to day.
I’ve made the pursuit of this case being to ergonomically enhance the way you hold an iPhone 6.
I’ve been working on a wallet model design now for awhile. (MK23…) Been pretty excited about it’s development. It’s hinge is industrial quality and that excites me. It prints together as one and is made in america. I will continue to refine it until perfection but it has now affected my life.
I went out to a usual Friday night spot, a familiar place with pictures of local celebrities with signed bathroom stalls with funny jokes. When I arrived I realized my 3D printed wallet had lost the main thing it was made to protect. My I.D. It’s sole purpose is to be a go to wallet for outings and events. Slim, light, break-proof and secure. When a V.I.P. asked me for my last 3D printed biz card, there was no tension to hold my I.D. in place. It was loose, I should have noticed, but my future customers will not care. If it looses their I.D., I will be to blame.
Moments like this infuriate me, yet also excite me. I know it’s moments like this that can evoke action. Action that creates change and change that moves the world. 3D printing is no joke, not only do you have the ability to create but the ability to fail. Build it wrong, it will show you why… Build it bigger, lighter, smaller, stronger… they all have their repercussions.
At the end of the day I just want to build it right. A way in which I could show my future son/daughter and be proud that it’s something worth passing on to them. Something while small, I obviously cared about and put time and effort into making it right. It’s the personal insights, those moments that cause real introspection that have always made the difference to me. Hopefully this is one, while small, will eventually add up to make all of the difference.
My DK1 has probably been the single best piece of hardware I have purchased. Not only because it actually for me lived up to the hype but it represented the culmination of so many great things that helped make it possible. Computers, Displays, Transistors, Video Games, Personal Gaming Devices, Sensors, Tracking, 3D and so many countless others…
The DK2 is right around the corner and I have some amazing ideas and now talent around me to pull off some amazing things for VR. Hopefully I’ll be able to order my DK2 soon, Space Elevators, Iron Man MK2 (Flying) and so many other projects can’t wait. 2014 has been an amazing year thus far, I’m very thankful and grateful for all that I have.
Web Projects, 3D Printing, VR Development. It can all get a little overwhelming at times. I haven’t had much time to sleep, or work on my internal marketing etc… but I am doing some of the best work of my life. I just have to continue to try find the right balance.
Unreal Engine 4 is amazing and I am planning on using it for several new projects for VR. Iron Man MK2 should be right around the corner and am really exciting about integrating flying and other new mechanics. In my downtime I’ve actually modeled a pretty sweet Space Elevator that I am working on for my next big project. That one will be more geared towards education…stay tuned!
The presentations I gave on 3D Printing and Virtual Reality have been a really positive experience. I am definitely going to be continuing that effort to try and improve my presentation skills so I can communicate this technology effectively.
This really has been an amazing year thus far and I really can’t wait to get all the projects I’ve been working on out and into the public eye. Hopefully it will be sooner… than later.
Feels good to be in full tilt… 3D printing is an art and as with any art; it will take time to master. I’m working on a variety of different projects that are going quite well and potentially will have a variety of applications across several fields. For example the internal mechanism for a watch clasp prototype has proven extremely useful and I believe will be easily applied in other applications.
I find myself constantly questioning what can be built and where the limit lies. My passion for engineering, physics, applied mechanics, architecture, design, fashion and prototyping is continually fueled through 3D printing. The days ahead will be challenging but the journey unforgettable.
