PhilcoPC: Not Yet Real, But Thank You.

004 proof of 3d

Thank you to everyone who has called or written to inquire where they could buy (or be a distributor for) the Philco PC. However, all images are 3D renderings of a design concept which does not yet exist in the real world. We are currently meeting with PC manufacturers and hope that will change in the near future. Any news regarding manufacturing will be posted right here on the blog when available.

In the meantime, thank you very much for the interest! It is very cool and high praise when people think that your 3D images are photographs.

For those interested in the software, Rhino 4.0 was used for the 3D modeling and V-Ray for Rhino (a plug-in by ASGvis) was used for the renderings. Due to popular demand, there will be a future post with more specifics on the design and rendering processes employed.

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..

    Great POST!

    Although, I believe that this design was actually constructed. Here’s a link to the picture of this design realized.

    If your spam filter flags the link, you can send me email and I’ll be happy to pass it onto you.

    One idea is that it might be a easier to get it into production if the aim would be to provide not a whole complete computer package but to simply leave motherboard, cpu and so on out. It might also be beneficial if monitor and base unit are separate products.

    No matter, i do really hope this will get into production.

    Thank you and good catch on the date! I had seen different dates in my research. But you are correct, so I have updated the press release.

    I am a Philco collector and know the Philco Predicta line of televisions very well. They were introduced in 1958, not 1954 as mentioned in your site, but I wish to say you are on to something big here. Check out Telstar for they are making color tv versions of the Philco Predicta, and have added new designs along with traditional classic Philco models. The Predicta was the greatest early television line, and has lots of interest due to the novel, futuristic styling. The older computer crowd would love to get their hands on a Philco PC.
    Best of luck with your venture, for I do hope you can bring it to market. It is a tribute to the designers at Philco that so much interest remains in the Predicta and the styling offshoots that have emerged throughout time.

    I am in love with this computer design! If it was available I would buy it on the spot! I hope you hurry up and get it on the market, before I lose all my money again…
