Fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht at Makerfaire

Dutch fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht assembling the Particle Dress on site at Makerfaire Bay Area.  Individuals were invited to design their own pieces from templates, then send 3D-printed creations to Anouk for assembly at the Autodesk booth.  Each of the hexagonal pieces was unique.  Some were illuminated, and one piece even spun around like a pimp's hubcap.  Makerbots at the booth provided some last-minute printing.

Engadget hired me to produce images for their review of the latest iPhones with an emphasis on the dramatic increase in size.   I photographed the devices against a door frame with a growth chart to illustrate the trend towards larger screens.  Art direction by Joseph Volpe and Christopher Trout.

Engadget Awards

Promotional shot for the 11th annual Engadget Awards show, showcasing the best and worst technological advancements of 2014. Featuring the glamourous Gwen,  unofficial spokesmodel for Engadget and TechCrunch.  

Orange is the New Black...

Orange is the new black...in tech.  Lenovo Yoga 2 ultrabook and Fitbit Flex, photographed for the new Engadget Buyers Guide.  Glad that more and more tech companies are introducing more colorful hardware.  It took years for computer makers to move from beige boxes to black and silver machines.  Thanks to fashionable wearables, and phone makers like Nokia/Microsoft, tech is finally getting some color!

Wearable World GlazedCon

3D pen from Creopop.  Ultraviolet light hardens cool-to-the-touch "ink" as you "draw".  This is the same technology that dentists are using to "cure" modern dental work.  The refills have to be kept out the light, or they will harden and become useless.  Fun use of this technology, although the freehand nature of the device requires a steady hand to avoid sloppy-looking sculptures  Click image for more photos.

RoboTar at O'Reilly Solid Con

The RoboTar allows you to play a guitar with one hand.  You strum with one hand, and select pre-programmed chords with a foot pedal.   Inspired by a stroke victim who lost the use of one arm, and could no longer play his guitar.   The device is quite bulky, but hopefully future funding will allow them to downsize the components and streamline the look.  It does, after-all, have to fit on a standard guitar.  Perhaps they can design an instrument from scratch, for one-handed players.    Click on image for more photos

Tesla Day Trip

Touring the countryside in a Tesla Model S.  Atrascadero, CA.  Beautiful, high-performance and comfortable.  By far, the nicest car I've ever driven.  And as a bonus, it is all-electric!

Monster Fashion

Monster headphone fashion show at CES 2014, Las Vegas.  Featured: Diamond Tears headphones.  Quality sound, with an upscale, high-fashion look: perfect for the runway.    These look amazing right out of the box, but are a magnet for fingerprints and smudges.
