The Future is Retro with the Philco PC
In my non-stop surfing of the internet for cool hip things that mid-mod lovers might like, I found the Philco PC. Now, I am a dyed-in-the-wool Mac user and I doubt this will ever change but if I had to make the switch, a computer like this would make the transition a whole lot easier (at least I’d have something pretty to look at while it reboots after crashing).
The design of the “Philco PC” was inspired by the 1954 design classic Philco Predicta, as well as an eclectic mixture of modern minimalism, the steampunk movement, and antiques. As lead designer Dave Schultze of SchultzeWORKS explains, “The result is a design aesthetic that blends multiple elements of the familiar, but with some surprisingly fresh styling that just so happens to house a state-of-the-art Windows 7 PC.”
The Philco PC was created for a 3d modeling competition so is only a concept design right now but Schultze is in talks with a number of companies to actually start producing them. I’m looking forward to finding out what happens!
