I Predicta RiotI first saw this amazing computer last month but I didn't blog about it because so many others had. However, as I'm still drawn to it and this is a blog about MY inspirations after all, I decided to post it here now. At the very least to borrow some of its beauty for my blog.
This computer doesn't actually exist - it is a 3D rendering of a design concept. It was designed by Dave Schultz based on the Philco Predicta TVs of the 50s and 60s. It's curvy, it's orange and I want it. Luckily it doesn't exist though, because I probably wouldn't be able to afford one anyway.
I love the design of things in the 50s and 60s but I also love the functionality of modern equipment. That's a problem a lot of us vintage lovers probably have. We want the look of the past but we want the features of today. That may not be true for all of us, but as you'd have to be using some form of modern technology to read this, you probably know what I'm talking about.
There's a lot of retro looking radios out there but I'm REALLY glad to hear that you can still buy a brand new Predicta TV with yesterday's style. You can read all about them on their site.
Which one would you have?
