Time to think about design

Lately, I’ve been talking to you about the new X100 prototype : How it works, the research I’ve been doing  in order to  create , and understand technology.

Today it’s time to think about the design, and see how can I build a prototype that will encourage people to  buy it. I was thinking of  creating a futuristic design, but in the same time a practical one. A  good example is the  Canon Wonder Camera Concept that was  displayed at Expo 2010.

In the same time, I want the design to be as simple as possible and  the size of my X100 to be a pocket size. ( here are a few unusual concepts of design that I found wile I was researching ) ” http://www.designswan.com/archives/12-innovative-and-unusual-camera-designs.html ”

Paul Rand, said about design,  that “is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated. “

In the picture above you can see  the ”  LEICA i9 for iPhone4 ” , The WVIL concept camera by Artefact combines a (wireless) lens with a body that has all the feature of a smartphone. This could be a good idea  for x100 prototype,  but it will take a long time for all the components of my technology to be  incorporated in a camera that small.

I started working  on my  design in  Photoshop, and I will use  3DSMAX to create a video that will promote my idea.

Let me know what you think about design so far.
