• Is there value in testing an idea? Have they ever experimented with a new way of doing something?
-I think there is a lot of value in testing an idea. You have to test out something before you can go ahead and call it the finished product.
• Have you ever applied this kind of process in your life? Think of an object you consider to be an example of good design and describe it's form and function. Does the object you selected meets your needs in terms of form and function.
-I have applied this to my life. I would always make something that's very cool looking, but would have to change it due to the fact that I needed to add something else. I would consider the Xbox 360 controller great design because it fits perfect in anyones hand and it just feels right. Everything about the controller is great.
The app I had to review was 123Design. Basically, we can design almost anything. I say "almost", because we can't make our own shapes to make a bigger, better design. We have to choose from the shapes and blocks already installed to make something, which is bothersome in my opinion. The app is very easy to use though. The only thing that is annoying is that when you have too many things going on, it gets REALLY laggy and slow. I would give this app 3.5 out of 5 stars. The following images are of a house that I created using the app.
I liked this video a lot, and it makes me want to go make my own mini chairs! The purpose of Kickstart is to share an idea and hope that a bunch of random, but generous people fund your idea to make it a reality. SketchChair is a very cool company in my opinion, because they let pretty much anybody come up with an idea for a char, sofa, etc. and make it come true. I love how I could sketch anything I want, and see it become a reality. I think there should even be an app for the iPad that'll let you build you chair, and then you can send the company the blue prints and they'll make it for you.
Charles and Ray were a couple that loved industrial design. Their main design was making chairs, and they were very good at it too. Charles and ray could basically make a chair that'll suit anyone's need and it'll function properly, but it'll also be aesthetically pleasing to the eye. They go through a few steps before making an actual chair. For example, they sketch out many ideas, then they pick a design they want to follow through with, then they figure out with what materials to make the chair out of, and then they start creating a chair. These two can make a chair out of almost anything, and it'll come out amazing.

Basically, in Washington DC, in front of the National Air & Space museum , they're building Eisenhower square. It will host his memorial and it will look very pretty. What colors look best with the surrounding, not to use to many decorations and to be Eco friendly is always a plus.
This time, I reviewed "http://mocoloco.com/". Like EyeCandy.com, this website also has many pictures of furniture that is "fresh" and "hip". I love the designs of everythin they show
