Manzana has a history that by now has become legendary for the legacy of the technology and computing industry.
From the moment of its foundation, the design of each computer was a distinctive element of these teams, where the first Macintosh became the cornerstone of the current empire.
The truth is that throughout all these decades of commercial experience, the guys from Cupertino have managed to become an obligatory reference for the sector thanks to the design of their devices.
Without going that far back we have obvious and recent examples in the industry with Apple setting design trends.
There’s the Apple Watch, or the iPod, even the iconic iMac. So with the current advances in artificial intelligence it was only a matter of time before someone considered asking these systems to reimagine what the company created.
Stable Fusion AI shows off its take on the iMac, Macintosh, and other legendary Apple products
Steve Troughton Smith is a software developer specialized in the video game industry and the creation of mobile apps.
The champion even has an official page of patreon where he asks us to support him so that he can dedicate himself fully to his projects in this sector.
But it also enjoys relative fame on the social network of Twitter where a post of his has gone relatively viral.
Where, after testing the capabilities of Stable Fusion Artificial Intelligence, the subject decided to ask the platform to reimagine the design of some iconic Apple products:
We thus see how the iMac, the first Macintosh and even the iPod were redesigned by this AI with mixed results.
In some cases, like the first Mac, we see a whole dozen concept images of what it might have looked like.
In the case of the iPod we have more limited artwork which, ironically, in some cases closely resembles the prototypes before their final form.
While with the iMac we have a stylistic proposal with six variations where they are very similar to the original but with aesthetic changes very much in keeping with its time.
For everyone, he followed the same process, feeding Stable Fusion an official promotional image of the original device while registering the request under the logical “architectural sketch of the iPod (iMac, Mac, etc.) from the 70s, Dieter Rams, Braum”.
That also explains some details in the design of this interesting experiment.
