Flare Headphones

A Rapid Deposition Headphones Project



This project explores the growing idea of “…prototype as artifact,” (-Teague) and that functional design can be achieved by anyone, whether in a veteran consultancy, home office, or the garage… … this is truly awesome! Now more than ever, custom, small scale design and manufacuring will change the way we think about the production of artifacts in the future. While there will always remain the need for traditional manufacturing, a whole new paradigm for self-design is upon us, opening a door for the creative potential in all. With ever increasing materials, textures, light transmission, and density, one is limited only by their imagination and willingness to join the movement. Many new printers and programs are currently on the market with more on the way. From high end programs such as Soldiworks, Alias, and Rhino to more accessable software such as Sketchup Pro- just choose your skill level and start making your creations come alive today!
