Good ideas with bad execution, or good execution of what should be bad ideas - an analysis of inferior, off-beat or malfunctioning products, and how other people's failures can help us design better stuff.
I can’t believe someone makes… A wooden MacBook
Who wood believe it, eh?
Books are made from paper and paper’s made from wood – I know – but who would make a MacBook carved from wood?
Full marks for craftsmanship to one Kyle Buuckner, though. And thanks to Cult of Mac for highlighting objet d’art. It writes:
Buckner constructed the casing out of wood, routering all the corners and then priming, sanding and painting the pieces white. The hinge system replicates the real Mac’s and is fully constructed out of hand cut MDF wood.
After he painted the pieces, he used a pencil to add the fine details. He drew the screen and full keyboard and penciled in every tiny phillips head screw at its location.
