Spectre’s UI/OS Designs.

While my interests in the latest James Bond outing ‘Spectre’ were primarily audio based, one can’t ignore the beauty and technically precision of the visuals.  One of the least glorified, easily overlooked, but immensely stunning aspects of the film are the digital user interfaces, and operating systems used by characters in the movie.  From the technical breakdown of the DB10, all the way down to the maps, and computer screen designs, each screen was painstakingly created from scratch by incredible visual artists.  Although these images may have quickly been glanced by movie goers during the film, are all below for you to behold.  Check the method.

Here Comes The Full ‘Spectre’ Trailer.


daniel-craig_3138898b-1

Since early last year (2014) I’ve been “helping out” with some sound design aspects of Spectre, and since the original teaser trailer 2 months ago, I’ve loved seeing more compiled secenes of the film in action.  Earlier today the full trailer was released, and it is amazing.  There is a seeming return to Bond and Q discussing gadgets, (as well as an odd reference to Bond ‘disappearing’, which may be attributed to the coming departure of Sam Mendez from the franchise).  However, this new trailer finally gives us some action, car chases, Christoph Waltz’s villain, Dave Butista, Daniel Craigh seemingly blowing up a building in Mexico, and Bond undressing Monica Bellucci.  (Something I’ve wanted to do for some time now.)  Check the method below, and go see ‘Spectre’ in November.

During my brief time working with Sony, I’ve had to marvelous opportunity to see some of the best work put out under their umbrella.  My closer friends know my particular connection with this movie, but now that it’s been officially released, I’m proud to present the first teaser trailer for Spectre… the 24th adventure in the James Bond series.

The Flying Buggy.

SkyRunner is a dune buggy and a power parachute in one. After almost three years in development, it is on track to hit the market later this year.  This odd seeming mode of transportation is something that will attract thrill seakers from all over the globe.  Check the video details below.

My favorite part of the video is when they state it’s LIKE something out of a James Bond film… Thats exactly where SkyRunner’s creators got the idea from.

Aston Martin introduces its Q personalization program at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show to provide tailor-fit cars for the most discerning customers. Q by Aston Martin is giving buyers the opportunity to customize their car inside and out with different paints, trims, leather and veneers. The nomenclature of the program has been inspired by its longtime silver screen partner James Bond whose ‘Q’ is a quartermaster which customizes his vehicles with different features and gadgets.

Did You Ever Want To Breathe Underwater?

A new invention looks set to change Scuba and diving in general. It’s shocking task lies in the idea of microscopic, nano scale ‘artificial Gills’, can effectively separate the Oxygen from the water while diving, on demand. A series of tiny threads or strands have microscopic holes along their width, which are smaller than water molecules.

It’s called the ‘Triton Oxygen Respirator‘, a miniature but incredible device that will do away for the need to move bulky tanks on dives, and allow the dives to last much, much longer than can be had with current equipment.  The weight accumulations will help emergency responders to move around more calmly too without having to move bulky and heavy tanks around with them. We inhale about 6 liters per minute (when resting) and maybe 10 times that when working tough, so a pack containing 2 or 3 liters of water will stockpile a generous supply of O2, enough to last long enough to pursuit and salvage people from smoke filled buildings.

The Scuba industry is thinking ahead onto commercial, private and military ships as a secure device expressed to all passengers and crew, aircraft too if they have to dive into the sea. It could also be used on land, by firefighters, with minor adjustments. All they’d need would be a small canister of water or something identical to a hydration backpack to excerpt O2 from..there’s lots of O2 in a particular liter of water..about 630 liters worth.

All The James Bonds Combined

By combining all six James Bond actors into one single face, which could be considered the perfect aesthetic for the role. Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig have each portrayed 007, starting with Connery in Dr. No (1962) all the way to the present day with Craig in Skyfall (2012). To create the final face, they combined the three early Bonds (Connery, Moore, Lazenby) and then combined the three more recent bonds (Dalton, Brosnan, and Craig). The two resulting images were then combined to achieve the finished look.
