A Visual History Of Apple Design

Posted in Apple News, iPad on 28/06/2011 by J. Glenn Künzler


The good folks over at Transparent House have used their awesome skills to create a beautiful video illustration showcasing how Apple’s products have evolved throughout the company’s history. The movie is absolutely beautiful – watch it now!

The production focuses mainly on the iPad, and the products that the creators felt inspired its introduction to market. The clip (and all of its amazing models) was created entirely using #DS Max and V-Ray, and it took about 10 days to complete. The video is, without a doubt, a very professional end result, and this type of visualization is always a fantastic way to illustrate a concept or idea.

The animation was done solely for artistic reasons, and the creators hope that it will be used as an education tool for the 3D design industry. But enough of me typing away endlessly about the video – you need to watch it! See the whole thing embedded below.

      Are you serious? You missed the whole point…

      • Fredrik Jackson

        Sorry, then.

          While perhaps your brief comment “missed the point”, I do agree that iPods could be included.

    So, Apple quit making computers in 2006? I don’t think real computers are going anywhere any soon, despite the tablet/smartphone frenzy

    Nice video, very well done in graphics, rendering, transitions, and design.

    I think it should include a couple of the iMacs, precede the first iBook with the eMate, and try to use real images of the equipment. That classic Mac 128 looks cool, but is obviously not the real thing.

    Maybe the creator will rerender the video when the new iPad and iPhone come out.

  • No ipod, g4, or aluminum imacs/macbook pros?
