Recognize that? In case you’re having trouble pinpointing what it is exactly, let me help you out. That’s a Lamborghini Countach, albeit a modified one. To give you a better picture, here’s a “real” Countach.
The first image is the result of what the guys at United Nude Lo Res Project have been doing. They first get a super accurate 3D model of a real life object; then they reduce the resolution gradually using 3D software. The results are quite simple, but beautiful. Car enthusiasts may disagree that the lo res Countach is as beautiful as the real one, but no one can deny that it attracts attention. Those planes and angles are just astounding to look at, aren’t they?
Now on to some girly stuff – shoes! United Nude has plans of using the design process to create shoes, and they’ve actually done it. This is one of the first pairs that have been designed using lo res techniques.
It’s obviously very pink – feminine – but it’s got something else that you rarely see in women’s footwear. Those angles add a certain kick to the pair, don’t they?
They have all sorts of objects in their web site: cars, shoes, chairs, motorbikes, buildings, and even all sorts of drinking glasses! I think it’s a pretty cool technique that just might be picked up by designers and manufacturers in the near future.
