First Five Creative Designs

Air Jordan 1

Original Air Jordan 1: I love this shoe because it is both aesthetically pleasing and also serves it’s purpose as being a great basketball shoe. This shoe is the perfect example of a design being both Poetic and Pragmatic. The reason I believe this product to be creative is because this is the shoe that started out the entire basketball shoe industry. Before this shoe, basketball shoes were extremely plain and boring, I believe the rule was that majority of the shoe had to be white. Without this revolutionary design and colorway, there would be no huge basketball shoe industry. Here is a Link to the Jordan/Nike web page: http://www.nike.com/us/en_us/c/jordan/nike-jordan

 

 

Faceless Watch

Faceless watch: I find this watch simply fascinating. I have always loved lights and the aspects of having something light up. When you think of a watch you normally imagine either a leather or metal band that is connected with a dial(being the face of the watch), but in this design, they took out the part everyone expects, the face of the watch. They designed the watch to hide the time and made it  look just like the links of a normal watch, but if you press a button on the side, the time revels itself through the links. Here is a link to the watch: http://www.hammacher.com/Product/82526?cm_cat=ProductSEM&cm_pla=AdWordsPLA&source=PRODSEM&gclid=CIibtv2vjrwCFe1aMgod4HMAUw

 

Lamborghini Murcielago

I have never really been a car guy, but there has always been something about the Lamborghini Muricielago that I find to be both a beautiful and creative design. These cars have a wonderful mix of soft and hard lines that allow for the best airflow around the car. Also the car brand Lamborghini was the first to have rear engines and paved the way for high performance cars. (No Link Available)

 

Nike Mag

 

The Nike Mags, or Nike Magnetic, were first seen in the Robert Zemeick’s film “Back to the Future: II” They were worn by Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) when he goes to the future, and I have loved these shoes ever since seeing them the first time. The reason I think they are so creative is because they were really the first shoes to have lights on them (still are the only adult shoes that have lights). And also in the movie they had “power-laces” meaning they would lace themselves up and I thought that was such an interesting concept. (No Link Available)

 

Polar Pen

The modular pen/stylus is such a cool idea. The fact that it has no glue or threads is absolutely amazing. The fact of how easily it can switch between pen and stylus is amazing as well. Then along with this creative idea, there are hundreds of other things that the pen has potential to do. Here is a cool link to see a video about it:  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1171695627/polar-pen-both-tool-and-toy-pen-stylus-made-from-m
