  • "Weellll... the shuttle astronauts didn't have much to do on the way up either, and CD docking procedures are manually controlled through the touchscreens. Also there is are two rows of hardkeys below the touchscreens on CD, broken into 'commands', 'power', and 'pyros', all of which seem to have some emergency usage. So I guess there are enough actual pushy-buttons on CD to make me happy."

  • "Thanks for sharing this. I don't purport to know much about the internal dynamics of car design groups, but some of the stories such as the excellent exterior design series published here on C77 would suggest that the high-tech capabilities and tools in auto design are not always founded in user considerations or a transparent, sustainable process. Or else, its just about what looks cool."

  • "Lots of reasons why a plethora of buttons are better for high-urgency usability - who else besides me prefers the shuttle to the Crew Dragon touchscreens? - but also, most of these examples are highly modularized, so they can add or remove panels or buttons as needed, and if a team is tearing down an entire car also changing the IP is no big deal. For most people and interfaces though having increased flexibility as in a touch screen unlocks future updates in a way difficult with a set of physical buttons."

  • "Also regarding the front wheel retention: Or - scratch the rim with the raw metal edge of the cutout. Or have an alternatively sized wheel that drops all the way to the axle and contacts your disc. If you are riding a skinny tire fixie as depicted you won't have a problem pushing it up the incline, and I like how they are staggered to obviate handlebar banging. I wouldn't lock anything to this except a $200 glamo-fixie though."

  • "The base is probably made of ten individual sheets of metal that requires extensive rework to make right, and fit-up between base and bottle varies widely in the production quantities. /s"

  • "Most of those innovations have been around F-1 for a while, but this is a great instance of the Halo doing what it was designed for. (looking up 'grade 5 titanium)... the impetus for the design and inclusion of the Halo was the completely improbably incident in 2009 involving Felipe Massa and a wayward spring.Robert Kubica's crash in the Canadian GP 2007 did similar amounts of damage but more of the rear end stayed together. He suffered a sprained ankle. "

  • "Appreciate the clarification, glad they handled this respectfully."
    on: Industrial Design: Why Is It Still a Man's World?
  • "I’m sorry that your post caused such negative feedback and misogyny to emerge and dogpile. YD seems like it often does a disservice to the entire design profession. Shameful of them to appropriate your content. 50% of my hires in the past five years  have been female. Other interesting levers to pull in the recruiting and hiring process could be the authorship of the job posting (typically written by me), or the pre screening effects of HR (typically  100% female). But in general the applications fall in line with your statistics above."
