This Dubai building is inspired by the iPod nano



While Apple discontinued its successful iPod nano in mid-2017, a creative group managed to keep it on its feet for much longer. Putting into practice the concept of cyberstructure, architects and engineers of James Law's Designs based in Hong Kong developed The Pad, a 24-story residential building based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Particularly, when talking about this structure saying inspiration is little, since it is literally a giant version of iPod nano, placed on a charging base, slightly tilted back to 6.5 degrees against the ground, rounded with polished and curved edges to match the characteristic stylistic tones of Apple.

However, unlike the iPod nano that did not have an Internet connection, The Pad will house 231 smart apartments. Each apartment will be equipped with high-tech luxuries that include a location-based virtual reality projection wall called iReality, bathrooms capable of analyzing an individual's health statistics and displaying that information in the mirror, as well as an advanced RFID tag access replacing traditional keys

According to the team in charge of the advance of The Pad, it is an innovative building thanks to the use of technology materials, intelligent material, content bytes and interactivity, which can no longer be separated from traditional concrete, steel and glass. .

"WE ARE ALL CONNECTED THROUGH INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY. YOU CAN NO LONGER LIVE IN ISOLATION WITH A PIECE OF ARCHITECTURE, SO THE ARCHITECTURE BECOMES ITSELF AS A MOBILE PHONE. "



The construction that began in 2006 in and that has faced economic setbacks, will finally be ready in the last quarter of this 2018 and from now you can enter the list of eccentricities inspired by Apple objects.
