Lately we’ve been seeing quite the interest from the general public when it comes to ‘what’s inside’ the many artifacts that make up our day-to-day lives.
Perhaps the best examples of this trend are the recent videos of objects being ‘shaved away’ one millimeter at time. While there are a few of them floating around out there, Waves of Grain and Verschleif have been making their way around for the past few weeks like wildfire…and it’s not surprising why: they’re dang cool to watch and informative at the same time.
While product designers can take a quick glance at an assembly through toggling some transparency settings in their favorite CAD program, it’s interesting to see these same views of actual products as they are in the real-world…manufacturing defects and all.
In ‘X-Rays of Toys’, photographer Brendan Fitzpatrick gives the viewer a closer look at what’s inside of these seemingly simple retro-futuristic and military toy designs:
Super F-15 Fighter Jet
Ray Gun 06
Ray Gun 02
Ray Gun 03
Ray Gun 01
Fitzpatrick is also selling the prints for $25 a pop if you think a ray-gun would look good on your wall…and yes, it most certainly will.
