Looking Out - Andre Le

The Making of Robocop's 3D printed suit

This article details the interesting process of taking a cultural cinema icon such as Robocop and re-imagining his image for a modern day audience. Martin Whist and his team designed this new suit taking inspiration from modern materials such as graphene. In their process, they considered the time period in which the original suit was designed and the design thinking behind it. Inspired by that, they reflected on the current state of industrial design and beautifully merged the nostalgic with the futuristic.
