John Maeda + Skateboard

French company Mekanism Skateboards is going to release a model designed by MIT researcher John Maeda. I like this kind of connections:

After its collaboration with the artist Invader, French company MEKANISM skateboards is giving carte blanche to John MAEDA for a limited-edition board. This board is called “thrrrrrrust”, the concept is two thousand little arrows arranged in a collage as a kind of representation of “thrust” as often seen in physics films.

This MEKANISM/John MAEDA board is limited to 100 numbered copies. It will be available in selected stores worldwide and on-line at from October 29th 2005. He will have an exhibition from November 19th 2005 to February 19th 2006 
at the Fondation Cartier in Paris, France.

When computer art meets skateboarding!
