Downloadable Designs: DIY iPhone Stand

Downloadable Designs: DIY iPhone Stand

Why do I love the idea of downloadable designs? Because people do such amazing things out of so little substance, and they ship ideas, not objects. Like this iPhone stand designed by french industrial designer Julien Madérou, downloadable from his website Dessine Moi Un Objet. It is folded out of a single sheet of paper.

Tesla to Base Other Cars on Model S

Tesla to Base Other Cars on Model S

tesla-s
Tesla Motors
knows how to keep media attention focused on them.  They’re always giving out little tidbits of information that keep us talking.  In that vein, the company posted an update on their blog about how they’ll be using the DOE loan money they received this year and revealed that the Model S drivetrain will be used for three different future Tesla models:  an electric minivan, an electric crossover-utility vehicle and an electric utility van for fleets.

As far as the government money goes, it will be allocated to two projects.  The first will be the complete production and assembly of the Model S in the U.S.  The second is a California facility that will manufacture EV drivetrain components for other carmakers in order to help them get EV models on their lots.

We’ll let you know more about these new models and which automakers will be using their drivetrain as soon as there’s any more information.
