If you read about design and the figureheads in today’s industry, you’ll probably come up with a list that can be counted on one hand (assuming you’ve not lost your pinky in a bar fight).

Apple’s Jony Ive, Dieter Rams from Braun, Yves Behar, Marc Newson, etc. etc. etc. You know the score.

But what connects these folks is that. while their work (or more accurately that of their teams) is similar, follows today’s design cues and customer’s requirements. It’s electronics, packaged.

The Fujitsu virtual Vespa

From desktops and clusters to virtualisation and Vespas, the show floor at last week’s Fujitsu Forum in Munich offered plenty for design and engineering firms to sink their teeth into. In particular, there were some interesting new developments for Small to Medium Enterprises (SMEs) with a desktop workstation that can deliver 3D CAD to up to 16 users via thin clients and a High Performance Computing (HPC) appliance designed to take the pain out of deploying a simulation cluster.


All eyes were on the new Intel ‘Haswell’ Xeon E5-2600 v3 Celsius desktop workstations that Fujitsu launched in October - the single processor Celsius M740 and the dual processor Celsius R940. Both feature an abundance of CPUs and professional GPUs - the biggest choice out of all the major workstation manufacturers – as well as DDR4 memory, improved cooling, a handy carry handle and optional PCIe-based SSDs. (Read our in-depth report into these new machines).

The Design Council has launched its own product design investment fund and accelerator for individuals and teams with revolutionary product ideas.

Open to anyone over 18 and based in the UK with a brilliant product idea that they want to bring to market, the programme welcomes early stage ideas as well as working prototypes.

Refreshingly, the product prototype or idea should be primarily physical rather than digital, and will be judged against the following criteria:
