Creating the discipline of gravity design

These are an assortment of images from my book and articles as well as interactions.  For the interactions (which will appear as black frames until loading is completed), click the “Z” on the lower left, then the middle option to expand to full screen.  Click the esc key to collapse the interaction.

 

Below is an interactive preview of Gravity 2.0, a book about new findings in gravity research that have implications for designers of products, buildings and cities. It contains the introduction and chapters 1 and 2 as well as a truncated Table of Contents and listing of References for those chapters.

New to this version are two “interactoids” in the Introduction. This use of the e-learning tool ZebraZapps for interactive e-books is a previously unexplored potential for interactive content.

Please note that the interaction may take a minute to load.  Once loaded, roll-over the “Z” in the corner of the interaction to select options to expand it full screen or in a separate window.

Below is an interactive exercise for the Locus of Design (also available on Google Play for android devices).  It was developed to aid in understanding design as an intersection of domains representing social factors, functional capabilities and experiences. It was developed by former design professor Greg Daigle in 2006 and first appeared in Core77. It has also appeared in the ebook “Gravity 2.0.” Explore how any design situation can be described as an overlapping set of domains the determine the “locus” of design.

Please note that the interaction may take a minute to load.  Once loaded, roll-over the “Z” in the corner of the interaction to select options to expand it full screen or in a separate window.

This app was build with ZebraZapps.

From the article “Terrestrial and space applications for gravity-like fields” in an upcoming issue of the Journal of Space Exploration.  These are visual imaginings of a gravityship “RV” mooring in locations with desirable views.  How to handle “roaming” costs for utilities and taxation, as well as residency for citizenship are just a few of the issues for such nomadic living.

Below is a Ragone plot of the energy density and power density of various sources. as compared to the E-Cat HTs (aka “hot cat”). Ragone plot of the energy density and power density of various sources. Derived from Forbes by Alan Fletcher based on the original figure by Ahmed F. Ghoniem. “Needs, resources and climate change: clean and efficient conversion technologies,” Progress in Energy and Combustion Science 37 (2011), 15-51, fig. 38
