Hemantha Kalam - 4 Designs de fault

Hemantha Kalam -4

Designs de fault

My nephew shared a quick video on facebook and intrigued, I watched the video of a car that can move any which way-forward, backward, sideways, U turns-you name it except fly. Amazing, and much wanted too in the current scenario.

So much money and time is spent regularly on research but how come none could finally do what the Chinese seem to be able to?

While they are at it, I do hope that a special signalling system / indicator, for making U turns also (presently only right and left are made available) is provided in vehicles as this can indeed be a real pain.

That made me think on what is happening to designs in the name of evolution. The more and more nice ones are giving way to Loud, Gaudy and Monstrous designs - be it in vehicles or watches, especially. Today's generation seems to revel in such disastrous designs which for old school thinkers like me are terrible to put it very mildly.

I wonder how many of the designers know and if at all understand the word "aesthetics" and whether it is time to re-introduce a sense of 'aesthetics' right from primary schooling?

You tell me!
