Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Meta gave a little plug to the Dashboard, which pleases our meta design tendencies. And it’s an interesting site – worth a look.

Our new friends at Fabbo gave the Dashboard a write up. Check out their site for an insight into the brave new fabricated world.

The Danish Design Center in Copenhagen has commissioned an exhibition of the Dashboard for Danish Design Week next summer. We’re super excited by this and will keep you updated on our progress.

Don’t forget you can download the Dashboard pdf and print it out on paper if you don’t happen to have a 3D printer handy. This one shows an idea for labeling buildings that was suggested by a couple of students at the Institute Without Boundaries this year.

Our friends at Bruce Mau Design gave us a plug on their blog. And a very good blog it is too.

We’ve had a lot of very interesting comments on the Dashboard, so much so that a new iteration is in the offing. Right now we’re trying to work out how to add some more specificity to the concept without being overly prescriptive. So version 1.0.6 is going to turn into the cliched 2.0 at some point in the future with the hope that we can skip to 3.0.1 soon after. Keep the comments coming.

I gave a very informal presentation of the Dashboard over lunch to the delightful Alie Rose from the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. This is a brand new design school in Denmark that starts its pilot year in September. It’s very cool, very exciting and you can read all about it here.

Dashboard going in the CCA Vaults

Apparently some of the work done by the  Institute Without Boundaries is going to be preserved by the Canadian Center for Architecture. Included in this collection will be another plastic dashboard (the plans for which you can download from our website).  

It’s exciting that the Dashboard will be preserved for future, uninterested generations, but it also sets the stage for at least part of my weekend — 20 hours of printing and peeling and assembling.

The Dashboard got a little plug on the designnotes blog. So if you’ve come here from there, welcome.

We’ve given the User Guide an update. We encourage you to download it and have a look because that’s where the meat of this project is. There are jokes too. Mostly the changes are writerly things and typos, so, if you’ve already downloaded it, skip it this time.

Ok, so it’s one day after the launch and were already getting some really interesting comments back. There are some really smart people out there and it’s nice when they take the time to write. Perhaps we’ll do a blog post summarizing some of their thinking in the near future. We’re still on Dashboard 1.0.6 but we’re already wondering about a system upgrade. Keep the comments coming!
