Ironically this video wouldn’t work on the iPad or iPhone, two products featured in this tribute to Apple design. It is a Vimeo Flash movie and even the site of the company that made this movie would show nothing on an iPad; it is all Flash based.
Oh well, at least it looks, and sounds, great:
Fromt he video description: Transparent House used its visualization capabilities to create a tribute to a company they greatly admire on the occasion of the iPad release. The idea was to show a glimpse into the history of this product giant by modeling some of the innovative products they’ve developed in their 3+ decade history.
The animation was done entirely using 3Ds Max and V-Ray render and took about 10 days to complete. Professionally done 3D visualization is the perfect tool to present concepts or new products in a beautiful, photoreal style, while creating a mood with music and conveying a message, through on-screen text or narration.
This animation was an artistic exercise and not intended for commercial use. The animation is not affiliated with Apple or any third-party companies. We hope this animation will be used mainly as an educational tool for the 3d visualization or/and design industry.
