And actually, honestly, I think all the above are much more interesting & imaginative designs than anything else posted in the thread. As for the relevance to how I dress? Obviously limited as cosplay has never been my thing! biggrin.gif

Perhaps, though, they reflect that I've never taken real-life objects terribly seriously. Home decor, high-end gadgets, watches, cars... none of them really grab me though they certainly offer some transient amusement. Cleverly crafted food & drink ranks a little higher perhaps. But most of the artisanal/handwork aspects intrinsic to the make of things that many enjoy appreciating on SF goes right past me and I don't "feel" all the various shoe/whatever pron-type threads beyond a vague "yeah, OK, pretty shoes" level. I can appreciate it intellectually, of course, but not emotionally. A well put together outfit, though, that I find engaging because it's a well-sketched manifestation of an imaginary idea. The components and their history/nature/make, matter much less to me than the synthetic whole. Not zero, mind, but less. The pics above are of clever ideas; somehow their very unreality/impracticality enhances that in my mind.

I'll see your Prime pic and raise you one of deeze:

push up soap dispensers - lots of potential, yet oddly neglected by designers. this one looks ok, but it belongs in a hotel.

secretary desks - now that everybody's regular desk is taken up by their computer, they don't have space to read and write on paper. this one was designed by g. tibergaard nielsen.

gillette super speed double edge razors - both the 40s and 50s versions are nice. i'm not hardcore enough for straight razors. i tried. i failed.

sheaffer targa ballpoint pens - inertia! it even applies on the scale of fingertips. i write much more legibly with a heavier pen.

A beautiful french made film camera. Although this thread seems to have moved away from camera, I always thought the design of the was reamarkable.

Them pegs.. I prefer a darker finish on the body, but still a nice fiddle, I'll throw a picture of one of mine up when I get the chance to photograph it.

I play mine every day.
did you go to their factory to get fitted? It was a fantastic experience, first time I ever go something sorta bespoke...

Mine's a Getzen, so I went through a regional dealer. If you look at that picture, you can tell it's actually an Edwards and not my horn because of the bracing. I miss that thing.

It is a purist ultra-fidelity vacuum tube audio amplifier. You know, part of a stereo. Made by a guitarmaker / engineer.

Me.

The Brompton folding bicycle. Probably a bit controversial, but I think it's a wonderful design and a fantastic piece of engineering. I intend to own one very soon.
