The Walkalight drone is a lighting exploration that merges quadcopter and smart sensor tech to create the ultimate in personal illumination. The air-filled orb is designed to levitate above the user like a street lamp and uses motion sensors to following their movements. Users can also control different features using verbal and gestural commands. It’s perfect for everything from nighttime walks to getting the right selfie lighting! See it in action —>

It warms our core when we come across some inspiring case studies. Just like this one that solidThinking shared with us, involving their 'Inspire' software and Columbia University's Studio-X and Tokyo DIGITAL STUDIO. The project (a pavilion) was collaboration between the two and showcased at the Tokyo Designers Week 2013. The structural optimization software helped generate a buildable complex shape that increased the stability performance of the pavilion.
According to Daisuke Hirose (Manager of Studio X, Director of Archicomplex Inc. and Professor at DIGITAL STUDIO, Tokyo), "Adopting Inspire for structural optimization in the first stage allowed us to fabricate a better model that simultaneously addressed strength and stability."
During the project, DIGITAL STUDIO discovered that Inspire's optimization technology was actually the result of extensive research about the growth of the human bones. The same principle of optimization can be easily applied to structural design. As a result, not only can the form be obtained without special skills on structural mechanics, but also a complex shape can be captured and optimized as a more realistic structure.
